I have literally never had a front plate on any of my vehicles. for various reasons. I have never once been stopped for it. Even on a few trip upto MN. WI really dont car if you have one or not. Yea its technically the law but in the last 6 years I have been driving they've never said anything to me about it. BTW sweet build I may very well have to do somthing similar to that. more for traffic then anything. that way I wont have to give my truck stiches again.

I really like your design. Could you possibly post some measurements from your pattern you used. I may try to get that work done on my truck. Thanks.

That's half of what I paid for my truck lol.
I can't really justify buying it, but after you sell it, you shud put dimensions up.
