It looks as though that frame hangs below the rubber strip? If so, I don't know how you would negotiate any driveways. I slightly scrape the rubber on my coupe every time I pull into mine.

the plate is not below the rubber strip. its the picture angle that makes it look like it is. This Post is to show an alternate location for the front plate. Texas is still a 2 plate state, my vettes plate is similar. Sort of a flush mount way to give the front cleaner lines asthetically.

Virginia is a two plate state as well. I just don't run one on the front. So far so good. But if I get a ticket, I will just pay it. I hate a front plate on a nice car. On my wife's Lincoln and my Jeep, I don't really care.

That picture with bolts...that pains me.

I had an MGB in Ohio that required two plates. I'm with you, Shakey, I ran naked in front, too. If I got nailed then so be it...I got caught. Pay up and keep on driving.

I would do that if the tickets were infrequent, but here in Va Beach the police look for every little thing constantly. They even patrol local mall parking lots and shopping centers looking for infractions. :(

The bolts are on the underneath behind the lower air dam

I've never been a fan of this. Either no front plates at or, or tie wrap it to the center of the lower grill.....but to each their own
