EE Front Plate Relocator(DIY)

Since I couldn't find a plate relocator anywhere I decided to make one. All I did was take some measurements and kinda draw it out on some graph paper. I made a to scale drawing and cut it out, transfered it to a piece of 1/8 inch aluminum. Plasma burned it out and belt sanded it all smooth. Tapped 2 1/4-20 holes and made a 3/8 slot and it was done. Enjoy! I do still have the template if anyone wants a copy to make their own.

Here it is

Here is the bolts I used to mount it

Here it is mounted
(Yeah I know the paint looks bad, my trim paint has been sitting to long)
^^^^ You can see where you have to trim the bumper at in this picture

Finished Project

It turned out pretty good for about an hour of work. It does push up the bumper lense some but once I get a grinder I'll make a little indentation where the lense goes. It does stick out farther than I wanted but at least it doesn't rub on the bumper. You do need to trim the bumper slightly so it it sits flush with the lense "bucket".

  • I did this mod, but i took an old plate from my shop and made it work. Great idea on what mounts to use 8)
  • i like it. how much would it cost to make another?????
  • I still have the template I used to cut out my plate holder, I can send you a copy. All you have to do is find some thin metal, cut it out, drill and tap some holes and bend it. Its pretty easy.
  • Ya mine took two plates to get it right. First one wasn't far enough over. It's an east thing to create though. Mine was free to do, even have a few more plates to do it for my 91 hatch. 8) 8)
