If you happen to live in a jurisdiction where front license plates are required, you have three options when it comes to affixing a license plate to the front of your DeLorean:
- Go without and risk the ticket
- The factory bracket, which requires drilling into the front fascia
- The aftermarket bracket, which mounts between the rock screen and front fascia, no drilling required
As we can't condone breaking the law, and it's our preference never to have to drill holes in the expensive front fascias, the natural choice is #3, the aftermarket bracket.
Made from 16 gauge 304 stainless steel and designed for easy installation using existing holes and rock screen hardware, this bracket is designed to keep your fascia pristine and keep you legal! When properly installed, this bracket holds the license plate in the correct original position above the air intake in front of the bumper.
Caution: Beware of some imitations made of lighter gauge steel as they will flex with movement of the car and damage the fascia.
