Default Swinging License plate bracket. NA only.

Moved to a state that doesnt even hand out a second plate for the front. So I no longer need this. Mounts to existing holes, comes with all hardware. The only part of the bracket that is visable after the plate is on is the rounded head bolts. The is alittle damage to the paint where the bolts touch the bracket when its folded up. Which proves that it works.

It is this one from thompson-automotive Disappearing plate holder - fits NA cars only I just noticed they have revised the holder, so Ill add some more info, this is made of metal. Painted black, and is not the same version as the link above. $15 shipped.

Yeah. I'm hoping it will clear the IC. Will find out soon as I get it.

You can allways make some brackets so your plate is a foot in front of your bumper :P If still bad, put the plate to one side and be done with it.

I wonder how well a one sided plate would work on my nb. hhmm

Installed the swinging bracket. The plate is held basically even with the front bumper. Clears the IC with plenty of space when swung back. I bent the top edge of the plate up so when it rocks back it's catching less air. Fit was perfect and easy. Folded under the plate is less than a 1/2" obstruction.
