Swift Motorsports Hide-A-Plate

Seems like a lot of guys on here live in states where a front plate is required. I know there was another topic on this a while ago, but this particular item was not showcased. So, to keep from reviving a VERY old thread, here is a new one!

You can keep your front plate, hide it while driving, and just flip it out when a cop comes around. Very cool idea!

When it flips under, does it not block air to the radiator?

Kind of old, the front plates are retarded though. You know how quick thing would get ripped off on that GT-R? lol

I would just cut the actual plate in half, and have it hinged and servo operated so it closes on itself.. Its far from difficult, you just need some ingenuity, and like $25 or so.
