I.L. Motorsports Clear License Plate Cover

[6/21/2004] Reviewed by: Harry A. Beck - hbeck@centurytel.net

Applicable to: '90 - '97

I.L. Motorsports clear license plate cover. Featured in "New and Hot on the Market", 6-30-03. Ordered from I.L. Motorsport's web site. I was a bit nervous about ordering from Germany on the web, but it went smoothly, credit card folks took care of the exchange rate, arrived in a very timely manner.

Not too difficult to install, but not exactly high-tech either, and there were no instructions or templates. There are 2 small "L" brackets at the top - you will have to drill a small hole in the side of the license plate opening on each side. The holes in the cover didn't line up exactly, but a rat-tail file fixed that.

Looks attractive, and would stay that way if you don't deal much with dust. Unfortunately I live 1/4 mile down a gravel road and all manner of dust finds its way behind the cover. You can rinse it out somewhat with a properly aimed power washer, but to get it done well you have to remove the cover - only 2 screws, but kind of a pain in the butt. Probably I'll remove it, but I notice it's rubbed some of the paint off the license surround (and I'll have to fill the screw holes...)

Difficult to remove without leaving damage
