    Default What did the Frt License plate frame look like?

    That's what those two odd screws are for on the left side of the front bumper, except mine are rusted and the slot in the head doesn't look too strong. So since you are required to have a license plate on the front in my state, I'll probably need the plate frame too.

    Except the parts CD doesn't show a good picture of the front license plate frame.

    thx.

    They didn't have a frame, except in Canada. There are four holes, two for the Japan size plates and two for the smaller plates. The plate bolts or screws directly to the bumper.

    I'll try to get those screws out next week, but it won't be easy(screw slots look stripped). Do you thinj I could get or make a license plate fram to bolt into those holes? I measured, and you were correct, as the distance between the holes is less than the U.S. plates. I thyink an off-set bracket would work.

    thx
