All, I'm checking to see if anyone would be interested in a front license plate mount that allows you to use a frame, without having your bumper drilled. Similar plate mounts that I've seen available on the net only mount with the bottom holes of the plate, which usually won't allow you to use a frame (IE the Scion frames). I have created a mount that can use the top, bottom, or both holes in a plate, can be placed where ever you want on the front grill and is adjustable. Material and colors may be somewhat customizable.

Just checking...

I've already got the one from Eight08 Customs... I don't see what's wrong with it. Works fine for me, and I have a frame, but it is a 4-holed frame. You could use a 2-holed frame, like the Scion one, you'd just have the license plate hanging lower on the car.

I'd be interested to see what you've come up with, but I won't commit to buying one, I'm sorry.

Mine is similar to the Eight08 one, but keeps the plate in the same location as if it were screwed to the bumper. Couple extra pieces of metal. I'll see about taking my plate off today and getting some better pictures. Here's one of it mounted...

I kinda figured that's about what it would look like. Hell, the Eight08 one could probably use those extra strips for added support anyways. Good luck making some coin on these, your design is probably better.

thats a good idea....

i would maybe try adding rubber caps on the top screws and placing the plate closer to the car....

maybe its just the view but the plate looks far away from the car.

either way, this is nice. good idea. keep us updated

I did find some rubber nipple thingies. I don't know how else to describe them lol. They were like $1 each though.

Yeah the plate is still sitting out a little far. I'll readjust it soon. Some people might not like the head of the bolt pushing against the plate, but it actually helps keep the plate straight and not lean forward.

It definately is....if you have a couple tools to make some pieces. I won't deny that.

If I ever move to a state that requires a front plate this will be something to look in to.
