I would have got one but my bumper covers like an inch of the bottom of the plate so you couldnt see the USAMustangs part of the cover.

thats why ya put it on the front.. that way if when its parked out somewhere in a parking lot people can walk by the front and go.. hmmm good looking frame... i might have to join..

Theres not enough room on his front bracket because the new texas plates are just a smidge too big and I had to kinda wedge his on the front bracket...

I don't understand why they make our plates too big! It's ta ta tarded

Blue 07-27-2007 07:08 PM

all you have to do to fix that is get a set of snips and trim it down a little...then you can make it fit whatever you want.

Kristy 07-28-2007 12:15 AM

i had to do the same thing. i actually got to use my bench grinder. however, i am still having problems which are unique to my license plate design. karen's and shannon's all worked perfect.

Shannon 07-30-2007 08:59 PM

I hope yours works out for you both

yep...my original plate that i got in 2000 is physically bigger than the new texas plates.

i had to bench grind mine down to get it to fit in the license plate holder. i'm also going to have to modify the little tabs to make it work. still working on mine.

however, karen's, shannon's, etc.. all installed perfectly because they are the newer smaller texas plates.
