Default getting back to my flip down license plate

well my dad and i started working on this, not on paper this time...

we still arent sure how its gonna be mechacnically moved, but eventually it will be a switch or flip down with the engine vacuum

right now it is made to slide out and then flip down, so when its up, its completely out of view, unless you crawl under there

Not that is an awesome idea! Looks great so far.

Might want to spring load it so when you're going 100 it dosen't snap off.

I wish I knew that you were working on something like this. I would have removed the vacuum actuators for the climate control from the parts car.
