law suit

@  mspenc45 : (31 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

I've read 4000 or 4500RPM for launch, but anything more than your tires can grip and traction control will shut you down anyway!

I finally decided that it was time to figure out something for a front license plate bracket since here in Texas where it is required by law.  I didn't see any need to draw more attention to the car from the local "men in blue" so I set out looking for a solution.   After a quick internet search, I didn't find any options that I was thrilled about, so I took it upon myself to make my own bracket.

 

After reviewing the front end, I decided that the best solution was to fabricate a bracket that would install in the lower "egg crate" grill below the front bumper.  I came up with a design that would let me install the bracket without removing the grill which appeared to be too time consuming for this project.

 

I ended up with two 12" bracket bars, one bracket with T-nuts that was placed behind the egg crate grill and another bracket that was fit to the outside of the grill which bolted to the inner bracket. This outer bracket also holds the two arms that bolt to the license plate. I also placed rubber weatherstrip on both brackets to the side the touches the grill. The inner bracket was made wide enough that when turned sideways, it fit through the opening in one of the grill holes. I used tie straps through the grill like a "lasso" to direct it into alignment inside the grill. During installation, I had to be careful that it didn't fall in behind the grill.   I also tied a strap to the last hole just in case the inner bracket got away from me and fell out of reach.  Once installed, and secured by the three bolts,  the tie straps were cut and removed. (Note - the long bolt in the second photo was only used to align the inner bracket and was eventually replaced with a shorter bolt.)

Looks good!
I did the Craig's bracket. There are not many choices out there. You should make up kits and sell them.
