LOL, I also told him to feel the wholes after I drilled them and he was like... "nah... nah man.. f' that I'll pass"

Thanks about the tape measure.

Re: Retractable Front Plate Installed!

do you have to remove the front bumper to get the motor back behind the mesh?

Re: Retractable Front Plate Installed!

I think it took about 2 hours taking my time. Measuring and cutting the mesh takes a little long to make sure you don't cut it too big.
No need to remove the bumper, you only have to remove the front grille.
The wiring is the easiest part, is 3 wires, 2 go to the battery and the other to the little motor.

Re: Retractable Front Plate Installed!

looks good Joe. Gotta love having a dented plate in NYC. But seriously I know how it feels when the dremel comes out. I remember that being done on the CF hood on my galant when the hoodpins were mounted.

Re: Retractable Front Plate Installed!

My plate was dented because I took a hammer to it. There was a bend from a long time ago and I said let me straighten it out but I ****ed up my plate instead. LOL
