Re: Walked in to look at at 14" and walked out with it !!

I might just take the new one coming in because they called me a week later and told me they couldn't get the loan or the DMV stuff done because I gave them a expired license .
So if they don't do what I say I guess I can give it back and go somewhere else

What options do you have for a front license plate on the SRT? It would be nice to not have to drill holes.

I plan on hot gluing magnets on the back of my plate so when I travel I give them one less excuse to stop me.

The closest thing to zero. Nothing is impossible n cars I guess, but the curves of the front bumper and the underside of the front lip and belly pan make the flip up plate nearly useless. My advice, you either decide to go plateless and take the heat, or put it on, and if you put it on do it like me and don't use a plate holder. Center the plate left and right, then center it on the bumper face up and down and it is almost the exact height. drill 2 pilot holes, then screw in to screws to them until snug (don't overtighten because then it'll strip out the hole).

magnets won't work, bumper is plastic.

How about using some of that 3m Command Adhesive. It's pretty strong stuff and they've got some products supporting weight up to 8 lbs (i would just double up) and it doesn't leave a residue when you remove it.

Its just a thought.... though I can visualize my license plate detaching and flying through the air at 80mph and hitting the traffic behind me

Sure it'll work.

What do you think is BEHIND the plastic bumper cover? more plastic?

see this Custom front license plate bracket

dense styrofoam absorbent.

That setup works, but I think it looks goofy down there and off center. Throws off the body lines to me when you are looking at it. Like a hot girl smiling with her lower right front tooth knocked out.

You can use the 3M very high bond (VHB) adhesive tape.
Stick like nothing else I have ever seen, and works in varying temperature extremes
