I am going to french my licence plate.I was wondering if others have done it?The main reason I am shaving the rear bumpers is legally I need a light on my plate.It should look good with the natural body line as well.Any feed back would be great.Thanks Tim

Hot Rodder!

Sounds good - Have to consider frenching the rear tail and indicator lights too.
Make a wee 'bump' at the top centre and put a light bulb in it then you could "solex" the bumpers and the reversing light to make the rear as smooth as a baby's ... posterior! ;)

Not meaning to burst a bubble, but, there are license plate frames that have tag lights in them, and I don't mean those goofy ones that going blinking around the frame, it just lights up the tag to be seen at night

Rick;
Basically you build a recess into the panel you're going to mount your tag, or antenna, or headlights

If you look at the rear the plate is already recessed a hair.To french it means to recess it more.I am only doing about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch.Try to keep it subtle.I haven't seen the plate rings that light up"besides the flash crap" but that is also a good excuse.I will post pics when done.Hopefully before the meet.Thanks Tim P.S. I used to love Knight Rider
