Front Plate option

Hey every one i was having a hard time choosing what to do with the front plate so this is what i did. let me know what u think it is just vinyl

It looks a bit faded in the pic but in person it is a perfect color match, $40.00 for a set of 2 just incase u ever need to paint the front end u have a extra.

no its not legal.. but its really hard to tell from a distance that it isnt real. i asked a cop about it and he said it depends on who stops u and what kind of a mood he's in.

There is a guy in town that makes them, he also dose full body raps. It sicks on the same as any vinyl i guess sorry dont know to much about vinal. All i did is spray the back of the vinyl and the bumper with water and squeegee it on.

+1

I live in BC and my car is en route from Houston. The previous owner never had a front plate on it, so something like this would save the hassle and expense of mounting a plate to the front bumper.

I also saw a very nice 997 GT3 with this done. It's as close to tolerable as front plates get.
