So I got a "no front plate" ticket today here in NY.
And it's gonna cost me about $140...:angry:
So I caved and put the front plate on...............my way.
I only took pics of the final result because its extremely easy.
I made the 2 bends using 2 long wood blocks and a small vise.
Then I drilled 2 holes with a 3/8" drill bit. I used a 3/8" bit to
accomodate the oem mounting bolts. I measured the holes by
lining it up with the oem plate bracket holes. Then I bolted it on.
Simple!!!:thumbsup:

at least if i get pulled over, i'll have better chance of getting out of it than if i didnt have a plate at all.....
i'll tell him that i can easily just bend it right back to normal...

I payed a lot to remove the ugly plate at front And you do the opposite.

I find a big front grill is much cooler, it looks more agressive.
believe me....if i had my choice....there would be no front plate

but i dont feel like getting busted everytime....:bored:

would depend where you are i guess, but from what i heard Bent is not illegal (unless it hides the necessary info), CUT is.

so if instead of bending it he cut the top and bottom it woulda been destruction of gevernment property or whatever. (cus it's their plates, you're just licensing them)
