For as long as we can remember, we’ve been trying to preach the PROPER use of the JDM Tilting Plate Holder. But so long as we still keep seeing these things being incorrectly installed on vehicles during car shows, events, and even on the streets, we will continue to show you how to properly use these things.
Remember what we’ve said in our previous post (The PROPER use of the JDM Tilting Plate Holder) <-- Also read that post to get a clear idea of the purpose of this mod:
Note that it is installed incorrectly and against its purpose if it cannot swivel upwards and tuck either under the bumper or inside the air dam. Usually, the movement is restricted by the stock air dam blocked by the plastic grille. Forcing the issue by installing it despite the restriction is so NOT COOL.
Also, using this with the glass or plastic plate number covers will just make it so heavy that it cannot tilt backwards. It is again against its purpose. NOT COOL.
Read on to see the rest of the photos of CORRECTLY INSTALLED JDM TILTING PLATE HOLDERS.
Pictured above is the DC Skyline Drift Car by A-Toy Body Kits.
Below is the car pictured on our October 2010 cover – the Nissan Skyfiro (Cefiro body, R33 Skyline front and rear) by A-Toy Body Kits.
Raymond Ronquillo’s R33 Nissan Skyline, which we’ve also featured on a previous article (Raymond Ronquillo’s Nissan Skyline R33 Drift Car).
Heck, even CustomPinoyRides.com AUTO GURO Kevin Carlos has this correctly installed in his Nissan S14 Silvia. Here’s a shot of the tilting plate holder in action at speed on the highway going to Clark International Speedway.
So there you have it. PLEASE be good Samaritans and share this with your friends. Do them a favor. Keep it cool, don’t be a ricer. Sport the JDM Tilting Plate Holder the proper way. Peace!
