When I first got my hako the license plate was only held on be one bolt. I looked into why and noticed that the Japanese license plate holes are wider then the US plates. I didn't want to drill hole in my plate and I also wanted to run a license plate frame. So I made a set of these brackets to mount my plate. I have now redesigned them and made them out of aluminum. I think these take them to the next level.
These version 2 brackets are made from 2024 aluminum and come with all the screws to install them on the back of a imported japanese car. The screws are M6 which the standard thread size for JDM cars. I also bought a Subaru Impreza and it had holes for JDM plates and little marks for the USMD plates to drill holes for mounting. I am not drilling holes in my front bumper cover. So I made sure I made a kit for this car too. I used a nutsert for plastic to have something to thread into. If I was to just use nuts on the back I would have to take my bumper covers off. This nutsert holds very well. In the last picture you can see the little mark where the USDM plate would mount. The front kit will include a bolt and nut to install the nutsert.
I know that other people that need this for there cars. These are $35 shipped for a rear kit and $37 shipped for a front kit in the USA. PM in you need a set.
Stop the drilling.
