    I bent mine out just a bit. Other than that, maybe some thin weather strippin? You can even have a license plate frame here anymore. They will fail you at inspection. (but you could put it on after)

    Yep any new plates are issued two at a time. The old green ones are the only ones allowed just on the back. I wish I knew someone who had a green plate, I would love to transfer and just have the one.
    got pulled over years ago for only having one plate, and the two plates were stuck together and mounted together on the rear. Cop was cool and sadi to just mount it.
    I hate where the plate is on our Tacomas, blocks air and looks just dumb...
