Not sure if this is really a "Mod" but I think it made a huge difference. Florida has a lot of specialty plates, manatees, dolphins, turtles, colleges, sports, etc.

I looked for a black plate because I thought it would look nice on my black car. I got the thought from RacerX (I think) on Youtube. I think it's a huge difference- much more than I thought it would be.

It certainly “pops” more than the standard plate.

What kind of rear diffuser do you have installed in those pics?

MP concepts. Just what I wanted looks wise. Not sure I am crazy about it being held on by double side tape only, but time will tell.

I dont have a heat gun anymore, but I used a small butane torch, and heated the diffuser pretty good when I put the tape on it, I don't thing that side will be a problem. I cleand the valance well and the cleaned it a few times with alcohol (white cloth stayed white.) I tried heating the valance but couldn't do it with that little torch for such a large area, without fear of going too hot. The directions don't even mention heat, just clean and then tape, so we will see. It is a lot of tape, just about the full contact surface.

I do like the looks. Like it came with the car.

Yes, looks good. CA has 60-70's vintage black plates again, yellow digits...I ordered them for mine. It's $50 for new plates, and $40 a year to keep them, but worth it.
Luxe Auto has the marker lamp and reflector pre-cut tints, and they make a big difference too. Check 'em out: Vehicle Specific Kits


Not my car, but will post up when the plates come in. They're saying a couple of months due to the pandemic. I did do the rear lamp seperator debadge and overlay though, mine is satin and looks really good. No more scratches or finger prints from closing the deck.

That vintage plate was what he had on the Utube.

Mine is a "support law enforcement" with some of the proceeds going to the widows and orphans fund (not really the name of it) maybe get me out with a warning if on the fence./

I am debating on the markers, not sure how far I want to black it out. So many done, trying not to be just another, If I do it I think I will pop them out and paint them. I'm not good with stickers, never get them straight.

I like the stripe on that car. I am thinking of striping in matte black be very subtle.

Ouch! I ordered a couple weeks ago, along with tags for my other car. The tabs came, but the plates they said 10-12 weeks.
I bet your plates got lost in the mail. I've had tags lost before, they finally replaced them - had to go to dmv with proof of payment. Giant PITA.

I thought I would have to wait but they had the plate at the tax office. The black version of this plate is brand new, still shows as white online and un thier catalog. Just make sure it's the new one before the start the new plate process.
