By popular demand, we will be running another group buy for our No-Drill Front License Plate Adapters.
If you have noticed those round factory holes in your front bumper you may be wondering why dealerships don't use them to attach your front license plate. This is because the holes are designed to line up with the mounting points of Japanese plates, which are spaced further apart than ours. The default solution for American dealerships for front plate installation is to drill self-tapping sheet metal screws into your pristine bumper. Ouch!! Not only are these drilled holes unsightly, but in many cases they eventually strip out and let go because no anchoring hardware or support is used behind the bumper cover aside from a little flimsy flashing.
Our billet aluminum adapter bracket mounts to the existing round holes with JDM plate spacing, and provides a secure and durable mounting solution for your US or Canadian plate - no drilling required! In addition, it allows you to add a customized plate frame, holder, or cover of your choice.
Even if your bumper has already been drilled by the dealer, our adapter brackets offer a much sturdier and more dependable way of mounting your front plate. The bracket features a low-profile design and is covered by the license plate and any plate frame or holder you wish to use. New and improved rubber fasteners for the current models create a buffer with additional clearance between the bracket and the bumper to insure your paint remains pristine.
Brackets are made from billet aluminum - machined, de-burred and tumbled.
Ready for you to apply your favorite finish - paint, plasti-dip, powder-coat, anodize - or use as-is (they will have somewhat of an industrial look). We will not offer the brackets with hand-brushed finish this time to minimize turnaround times for orders and to keep pricing low.
All necessary mounting hardware is included in the kit.
