Rear License Plate upgrade

Rear License Plate upgrade - 12/29/12 06:48 PM

I have a bunch of Camaro and Caprice Rear license plate brackets. These stay down when fueling. Makes a nice upgrade instead of jamming your gas cap in to keep it down. $25 shipped each in the lower 48.

Hate to hijack your thread here, but gots a question.

What's the difference between the Camaro and the Caprice plates? I've got a Camaro plate on my car, but have an extra Caprice plate put up, is one supposed to be better than the other?
Posted By: Aeroaddict

Re: Rear License Plate upgrade - 05/10/13 12:47 AM

both basically the same, just different style. The Camaro looks more like the stock "square" monte bracket. the Caprice is smaller and has a "bowtie" shape. I have a Caprice bracket on my car.

Be careful when you use these and forget to put them back up, as red light cameras and speed cameras can't get a clear picture of your license plate and can't fine you.

Re: Rear License Plate upgrade - 05/10/13 07:54 PM

^^^^^^^^^ Wow! That would really SUCK!!! I will be sure to make certain my plate is always in the upright position now...... wink

Re: Rear License Plate upgrade - 03/25/16 01:40 AM

I picked up 2 brackets from the junkyard to try on my car, one each from a Camero and Caprice.

In my opinion, the Caprice is functionally a far superior design for our cars.

On the Camero bracket, the curved arm that creates the "stay down" magic hits the fiberglass license plate bay before the plate rests all the way back on the little nubs as it does with the original equipment bracket. To me this looks awkward because the plate sits at a 90 degree angle instead of resting back just a touch as I'm used to seeing. Plus that's a lot of pressure to put on that one spot on the fiberglass, I imagine it might at least scratch the paint over time, perhaps even break the fiberglass eventually.

With the Caprice bracket, the spring and arm are on the other side of the hinge and so the arm dips into the gap between the fiberglass and the fuel port. With this design, the plate sits all the way back on the nubs as it should.

While the Camero bracket has a more visually pleasing look to my eye (who cares, no one sees it but you when you're tanking up), I have to recommend the Caprice bracket from a functional point of view.

Hope that helps someone out.

Thanks for the Caprice bracket!
Joy not to have to wedge the gas cap to hold the plate down while filling. Nice fit!
