    Thanks guys

    Hey Andy, just wondering, what do you have holding that rear lisence plate on? Are they just big bolts? It looks pretty good, and great job on the bowtie.

    they are homemade bolts. got them on front and back. they are some bolts from my brothers work and we put the nuts on them and cut'em off. then drilled and tapped a 9/16 bolt to screw thru the back side. i've had them on every truck i've had and they always catch people off guard. don't know how many times i've been asked if i was afraid my plate would fall off, haha.

    thanks on the bowtie!!
