Does anybody know a good way to make that plate cover less shiny? Would it be okay to spray it with matte finish clearcoat? Would it be okay to spray it wth a coat or two of PlastiDip Smoke when I pick up a can in the near future for another project? I was thinking this would darken it a little more and make it matter finish like the grille around it...

Yes, TX does offer black plates but they are $90 a year for non custom plates and $150 a year for 6 character custom plates. The license plate cover on the front license plate is also considered illegal because it technically obstructs the license plate. I was thinking about getting all black plates with RTHFRD or GUNMTL.

If I don't get custom black plates I doubt I'll put plates on the front of my Focus once I get them but that is also illegal but I have never had plates on my cars and luckily never been pulled over for it.

Pretty sure they offer one through myplates.com, but that makes it a "vanity" plate and therefore costs extra to register every year... Sadly, the regular plate is the only one that can be registered at regular price.

Also removed dealer badge, SE badge, and FlexFuel badge... Then added TCU emblem and plate frame, plus a window decal I had to represent my school distrcit (I'm a teacher in Crandall, TX).
One might also notice the aftermarket antenna on the roof if they look close enough... It is about three inches shorter than stock and thicker... Wasn't what I asked for exactly, but it was a gift, so it will work until I buy what I really wanted...

Please disregard the dirty nature of my FoFo... as many of you know it has been a snowy and icy couple of weeks. Hoping to finally wash her again next week before I work on the next custom touches...

Thats true. I didn't even think about where they were made.
