Where to buy license plate tilt LOCALLY?

Sup guys,

Where can I buy the liscence plate tilt locally?
I can find it on eBay, but I'm too lazy to pick it up in Blaine, and too cheap to pay for shipping to Vancouver

This is the one I'm looking for







Thanks in advance, peace

Home Depot sells them. They're called L brackets.

license plate being flat increases drag

by tilting it, it'll save you 0.02% in fuel cost

but honestly nothing

L brackets are about $1 each, you'll need only 2. Then just a little elbow grease to bend it to the right degree.

That jdm license plate tilt is $20 without shipping.

so this is purely for cosmetics? i thought it might have something to do with red light cameras and how the tilt may casue the flash to bounce off and etc...

I have the older 1 pc style for sale. I should have one BNIB, but I gotta find it. You'll have to re-drill the tilter or your plate to fit BC ones, cause they are for JDM plates.
like so:

pm if interested
