Well damn...I got nailed with another $80 ticket for no front license plate, so I suppose it's time to put it on. :dunce: Question for those that have the Platypus front plate mount: have you gone through an automatic car wash? I've got a place I really trust here in town, but of course it does use spinning cloth things and a hurricane force drier at the end, so I'm concerned about the mount being ripped off of the car. Anyone have experience going through a car wash with the Platypus? I'm not looking for people to berate me for using automatic car washes, so please refrain from replying if that's all you have to offer. xyxwave

Thanks!

I have the platypus on mine and take it through an automatic carwash with no problems. Just make sure you tighten the two mounting bolts tight and check them every so often to make sure they don't become loose.

Just make sure you get the raised style if your car is lowered. I have seen a few classic ones with the plates banged up from contact with the road.

My car is not lowered, but I intend to get the raised style anyway. Thanks!
