OK - while apart for new front springs built a front license plate bracket. I have to admit - it really was a PITA, but this should work just fine. It bolts to the front cross member, drops down under the splash shield then has a bar to mount the frame and plate. There is barely enough room to fit a jack under there with the plate on. With the IFS along with full fenders and splash shields, it is tough to jack the front of this car.




(Sorry - lousy photo)

Looks good and,a simple solution.. it is kind of a crappy law, and seemingly it is enforced here... I got a ticket over the summer for having a tow ball in the bumper of my truck because it was "obstructing the view of the licenses plate". I coulda fought it but figured it didn't put points on my licenses and it couldn't have been too much money.. few months later, I received a $40 ticket with an $85 court fee. also said to make it payable to CASH. but I sent an extra stamped envelope and I did get a reciept for it


Back when I had my '98 Ford Ranger 2WD, and I swapped the front ends. I never got around to putting the front plate mount on the new bumper. but I really didn't drive it much being it was a 2WD. and I completed the swap in August and sold it in may

How about rig/epoxy glue a couple strong magnets with cloth protection to the back of the plate assy?

Thanks guys - it was an "interesting" project. I think I'm down to one or two little ones, then on goes the hood - which I have to figure a way to hold the top halves down or use the zig-zag springs and leather straps.
