Just got my SSR flamed and looking for the billet flame licsense plate frame that was posted a while back. I've searched the database all morning and can't find the link.

I bought the "regular" version of this frame. Works fine, but I made the mistake of mouting the internal cross bar just a tad too high. I also needed a few large fender washers to fill in the gap between the cross bar and the rad support (nearly 1/4"). Still, better than the factory unit or having to cobble up something on your own.
Jim, you bring up a good point there. Maybe we need a poll for this, but how many of us that are having overheat problems are required to have front plates, and/or also have aftermarket brackets.JimGnitecki said:2. It blocks off more of the critical air flow to the underside air deflector than the higher mounted facotry plate holder does. The factory one blocks off a portion of one of the grill openings, but that impact is smaller than the impact of the BD plate holder blocking off part of the under flow.
Front plates have nothing to do with our overheating problems. Our problems are when we are at a stand still. Its all about the fan, so far I'am fine it goes up and back down. I've found that if I'am going to be in traffic (stop and go) I turn the A/C on w/recyle and it stays at 210 period...ssr71 said:Jim, you bring up a good point there.

Might be interesting to see the results.
