    ask your parents before removing their license plates

    LOL - Then you'll get pulled over for 'obstruction of view' cause you blocked part of the windshield.

    My brother gets harassed continuously about his plate because he doesn't mount it on his front bumper (has a kit).

    Anyway, he gets 48 hour warnings all the time, but only because his car is heavily modified. A stock car I'm sure you'd have barely any problems.

    My friend a had a 92 LeBaron....

    $110 fine at least 3 times a month.


    Just mount it where its supposed to go, unless you're planning on filling the holes in your bumper, you can't get any cleaner than that.

    They won't complain while it's parked in your driveway... since you can't drive it anyways!

    Sink 4 or 5+ rare earth magnets into the bumper when you are doing the body work.

    Then put a plastic or thin foam backer on your plate.

    Snaps right on to the bumper with zero mounting holes

    I think it's only like a $110 ticket not to have it there... and odds are if you get pulled over without it, the cop will ignore that and just ask why you don't have a license or insurance.

    You could mount it a bit lower so the majority of the bumper is visible, that is, after you fill and paint the holes. With tthe plate lower it can be swept back agaist the bottom lip. Really cleans up the look. I did it on my 81 Tercel.

    It depends heavily on where you live. Out in the sticks, they won't care, but you're in Brampton/Peel.....you're gonna get dinged, most likely at night.

    That should be fine. I mean, look where mine sits on the the Tib...

    Its no where near where the stock holes would have been. Its all the way at the bottom, and on the left....But I did angle it slightly so that approaching officers can read it more clearly as they pass by... :lol:
