Default Front License Plates...

i dunno how many forum members are from MA, but im one of them. and one of the things im dreading is putting a front plate on...so i was looking to get some advice as to where a good mounting place would be. or kits that can legally relocate them. ive seen people put them in the windshield but ive heard about getting pulled over and how it can be a hazard n stuff for accident reasons.

how about rhode island? ive seen a few people on here from RI.

you can modify a stock license plate bracket to make it offset to the left or right if you have the LX front bumper. Now if you have a GT then you probably wont want to cover up either of your foglights. Get creative and go stare at your bumper you will come up with something.

If you do it to make it look like it was meant to be that way ricer wont pop into anyones head, the word people will think of is "STOCK". Then again it is all how you perceive your own car, people could tell you all day long you have the sweetest ride they have ever seen but if you arent happy then it isnt right, you know what I mean?

yea, well i was thinking of doing that. but ive kinda got a bad driving record. lol ive had my fair share of stops. but only actually gotten 1 ticket. and for that one ticket ive had my license suspended for 30 days, but that was before i turned 18.

who knows, ill look into the offset front plate, might look cool.

i currently don't have a front license plate and i live in tx so technically its illegal. but my friend with a 94 uses 4 suction cups and tachs it to the top right of the windsheild (passenger side) and has never been bothered. i plan on putting mine right there as well.

When you say windshield are you talking about just placing on the dash?
