Looks good, but please mount the plate in it's proper location. Half-ass hanging front plate throws the look of the car off.

Tough to properly mount the plates on FG bumpers!

Cars coming along pretty good!

What's so hard abotu mounting a plate? Self tapping screw, and glue some aluminum flat bar behing the moutning surface if the FG is too thin to bite into.

Sorry man, I hope I'm not coming off as an asshole, but nothing says butcher, hack job, etc than a license plate dangling in a non-stock location, it just completely destroys the car for me for some reason. If you're happy with it, have fun and run with it. That's the most important part

agreed. what bothers me the most about fiberglass is that the paint never gives the same reflection as the rest of the car, especially noticable in dark colored cars.



but the car looks good... do as Axxe said, self taping screws and a bar on the back of the plate to mount it properly.
