Smooth rollpan license plate light idea.

I just bought a smooth rollpan from a guy on RPS. He lived here in DFW, so just got back from picking it up. I plan on mounting it in the center with a chrome or black license plate frame. Anyways, I like the look of the smooth rollpan and im thinking of several ideas on how to light the plate.

This is one i kinda like, but not sure if it will look bad or not.




What do you guys think?

I have found several frames that have lights built in, but wanted somethign a little different.

i thnk adding a light and plate to a smoothed pan is a waste

So how would the Swing up license plate work? I am kinda confused on how that would mount and work with a smooth rollpan. Plus, it would have to be lit.

It dosn't have to have a light. If you get pulled over, just ask the cop if it went dark when he pulled behind you. BTW, who did you get it from?

Ok, decided to get a normal Rollpan. Plus, it was only 25 dollars more than the one i have. Gunna sell the other to recover money.

Wont be here for another 2 weeks though, but they threw in a free License plate light with it. keke
