Whats up guys.
So I have this dilemma where apparently the wind is coming around or under the bumper and is actually bending my plate a bit...it's like a license plate taco. Has anyone had this issue? If so, do you have any cool mounting kits or anything you used? It actually caused my plastic frame to snap, that's why I care. Also, this can be applied to my front as well, I just got a ticket for not having a front plate. Stupid CA plate laws. LAME!!

By the way, the car is an 03 GT.

Thanks.

the plate does not drop below the diffuser, and i wouldnt believe just normal wind resistance would bend it

The wind is not bending the plate. You probably have kids near where you live and they're doing it.

This usually happens from going through automatic car washes without a sturdy plate frame.

Solution: Bend the plate back and buy a metal plate frame. Or stop going through automatic car washes :3_winkthu

Unless your going back to the future your plate should not bend because of wind. I would beat up the neighbor kids.

Unless his flux capacitor isn't tuned right. It may cause a vortex to form around the car but may not be enclosing that bottom part of the license plate. Movement through the space/time continuum may be causing the plate to bend.

Any carwashes that arent touchless.


Especially the ones that have two vertical spinning brushes that go around the back off the car... they get in there between the plate and defuser and its bye bye licence plate lol. I've actually worried about my plate getting ripped off before.
