I don't normally go for bumper stickers and such, but I was reviewing custom license frames and bought one on a whim.

As constructed, there is too much depth to the frame and the plate can rattle in the frame. The rear of the frame can damage paint. I installed vinyl bumpers on the back to prevent damage to my tailgate. A bit of LocTite to prevent the screws from backing out (because you can't really tighten them with all that air behind the frame, without distorting the frame) and a couple button-head SS screws from the local hardware store . . .

I'm not really a bling kinda man, but I admit that I like this.
