    Just wanted to get a few ideas on where to move my rear license plate once I get the top and rear doors off of the 40.

    Pics?

    The down & dirty way is to tie cord to top 2 mounting holes & attach to back of passenger seat. It'll get you thru until you fab. something better to attach to.

    I just threw mine on the floor in the back. I figure if I get pulled, he can see it when he walks up the side. They need a little exercise, with all the donuts they eat all day :flipoff2:

    My dad doesnt have a spare tire carrier or doors on the back of his topless 40. He just got a scrap piece of expanded metal and cut it to fit the opening, bolted it on with hinges from the junkyard and mounted his plate do that.

    haha

    Well I hate mud on my cruiser so there is no way that should ever be a problem. In fact the dirt you see on there in that pic is an outrage, I'll be out there with my toothbrush tomorrow. :rolleyes: jk

    You think I should put one on the other side?

    i went with the bailin twine around the bumper route....

    also, if you have the tie down things (whatever they're called) on the outside of the tub, near the lip, you can ziptie it there, and sort of bend it to the contour of the quarter panel....(did that too)

    In the back floor board under the cooler is the best place. :cheers:
    That way you won't loose it!

    I duct tape mine to the rear bumper / cross member. It held all summer long, and I thought it looked kinda classy.

    'Nother inside the spare tire mount here. I guess it is a CA thing. Maybe if the CHP can see the plate real well he won't go looking for other things.

    I baling wired mine to my safety chain hooks on my bumper, the wire ate through the plate in short order. Now it rides safely under the passenger seat :D

    One of these days it will go on the tire carrier - one of these days...
