A No Drill front bumper License Plate Bracket For your Bird!

Discussion in '1955 - 2005 Ford Thunderbirds For Sale/Wanted' started by vcionetti, Mar 27, 2016.

  1. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg For those who have been looking in vain for a solution to not having to drill your T-Birds front bumper, I've finally found the solution! Like many of you, I searched in vain for a "floating" bracket. Searching my memory bank I remembered my old 1990 Miata front plate bracket, bought a new one, and low and behold it works for my '04 Bird!

    eBay has the bracket for only $39.95 including shipping. Contact Atkins Rotary Specialists, Inc; by going to:
    eBay@atkinsrotary.com and order Item#230917945854.

    There are two pre-drilled holes for mounting underneath the car but allthough the pre-drilled holes workfor a Miata, the holes are two far inward to be used on your Thunderbird, so instead just drill into the two nearer non drilled "indents" in the bracket and you'll be fine. (You don't even have to cut off the excess metal)

    Your front plate will then be mounted with about 3 inches of room "floating" in front of your Bird's bumper.

    I'm going to try to attach several pictures including the bracket and the mounting on my car.
    4PacificBird, captrick and Aquarius like this.
  2. Interesting. Is the bracket all that is needed, or are there clamps involved?
  3. Hey, Bob.
    Just secure the bracket with 2 fairly small screws/bolts dirctly under the bumper, completey out of view.
    Works great.
  4. Bracket in the mail today. Looks great !Florida doesn't have a front plate, and I'm not going to mount the bracket until the car goes to Texas as a gift to my daughter. Thanks for the pics.
  5. Glad I could help!
