Hello Rossano, I have H bracket somewhere on the shelf. Do you want me to look for it?

The housing seals are ones that I picked-up over the years and are in nice condition.

I sanded then polished out the bumpers and reassembled the pieces with stainless steel rivets instead of plain steel as the factory did. So with this now installed....the front end is almost there. I just need to find the license plate holder! which I haven't seen in years........looks like I may need to make one up from scratch.

Beautiful work, Rossano.

Are those repro lenses?

Yes they are...and if I recall correctly, I got these from Centerline years ago. I wish I had bought a few more sets though....prices have doubled since then.

Cool

How about old style Italian custom license instead. I think it looks better than H bracket and should fit the bumper perfectly.

I took mine off and just run the rear plate. The front plate is just plain ugly and I keep it under the seat to stick up on the dash in a pinch, 8 years and counting, knock on wood!

Unfortunately for us we have a law that mandates a front plate. If only our country had adopted the sleeker more aesthetically pleasing European style license plates.....but alas ....it's not and will never be.

I run without a front plate on any vehicle that's looks are compromised by said plate. I've only been nicked once in 40 years.

I really think that most of them can relate and as long as you're not doing something stupid they'll let you slide.

Missing a license plate - where required - is one of those things that you get stopped for, then checked out for many other things. "Probable cause" they say.

Better to not attract attention for a little vanity.

IMHO

Thanks to those that have offered up a license plate holder much appreciated. BTW....another reason I prefer not to run without a front plate....I don't want to be pulled over by a curious cop wanting to take a closer look at my car....then having to justify pulling me over due to the lack of a front plate.

Progress wise....I started the wiring installation. The marine grade wire I used on my new harness resulted in a larger bundle size due to the insulation thicknesses of the wires being marginally greater than the original. I was concerned at first that the grommet wouldn't accommodate this....but it did. Of course in order to gain better access tp the area, one of the brake boosters needed to come out. Minor nuisance...but I probably would have to remove it when installing the hoses for the clutch and brake reservoirs to the feed lines on master cylinders.

Hi Rossano, how are you going to connect the brake/clutch fluid reservoir to the hard lines? It always leaks and it will ruin your paint. Corious to know what others do

Good question, I haven't finalised this yet. I don't want to end up with the result below again that's for sure. I was going to see about sourcing a small spring clamp of some sort.

What have others done?
