Yeah I understood the same thing about license plates in Texas. If the vehicle is only used for parades and displays, etc. then a license plate is issued but does not have to be mounted on the vehicle. In its place one of the markings on the vehicle identifies it.
But since mine is a daily driver those rules don't apply, so I am looking for a way to mount the plates that will sort of blend in with the overall appearance.
Raymond, that is pretty much what we used to do to our MP vehicles and it looks well suited for a license plate holder, thanks!
I also researched this forum and found this thread, viewtopic.php?f=10&t=18264
. It also has some very good ideas. I definitely will include a brake light and license plate illumination. But I do like the plywood insert in the spare. Maybe I can decorate it with EOD markings!
Thanks for the help! I'll post pics as soon as it is done. They won't be for a few weeks since the vehicle is in the shop.
