Default No Drill front tag bracket ;)

No Drill installation. What do you think ? I hate front tags, but state law, and our staties are picky about putting them on the dash. I couldnt bring myself to drill into the bumper, so I came up with this.

Ive seen a few off to the side too, but I dont care much for it. This cruiser came from Florida, which doesnt require a front plate, so, when I got it, it hadnt been drilled yet, and I couldnt bring myself to do it.

Mounted in the center where you have it mounted, may block the air flow to the trans cooler or radiator.

Well the reason I put it there was because I had read somewhere in a thread that someone else use to have theirs mounted there and reported no problems.

It wouldn't block the turn signal if it was moved to the side. A nicely placed one will allow airflow to through the lower grille while not blocking the fog light.
