    I already had holes drilled in the front so why not. I used Ford's font and made this in photoshop and uploaded to a vanity sign shop online. didn't turn out as good as I would have liked, but an hour in photoshop and $15 isn't too bad I guess... tmp_20140218_203301-139697123.jpg

    Yeah, I hate front plates as well. As you can see, mine already had one when I bought it and I now live in a state that requires it. :mad:

    While I think yours looks fine, if I didn't have to have one, I would remove it. But.....that's just me.

    @koala33, but you live in VA that requires a front plate (or have you moved?). I use to live there and was ****ed that I had to drill two holes in a perfect front for the frigging plate. I've moved to a state that does not require a front plate and they've since been plugged. I prefer no plate for sure.

    I forget where I bought them but I've seen them at NAPA. You could paint them to match using touch up paint before you install them.
