Default Machined Aluminum License Plate Frames

Hi All -

My name is Tom Floyd and I wanted to introduce my company, Fast Friends Garage. Our 1st product is an elegant, high quality, CNC Machined Aluminum License Plate Frame.

As an enthusiast, I have always been frustrated when searching for a plate frame to accent my cars. There are plenty of cheap plastic, pot metal and stamped sheet metal frames out there but nothing that matches the quality of our cars. Even the Carbon Fiber frames I have found are just overlays over ABS plastic not to mention very expensive.

Its a small detail but one that I feel has been massively overlooked. So I decided to make my own.

Our Plate Frames are made from aerospace quality 6061-T6 Aluminum Alloy which is CNC Machined on both the front and the back to create a frame that truly finishes your license plate. I designed it with a narrow 10mm wide perimeter profile so you have access to your DMV tags without taking everything apart. I incorporated beautiful chamfers into all interior and exterior edges for a finished look, and machined out the rear of the frame so it fits perfectly over your license plate. And lastly, the mounting holes are recessed so the screw heads sit nicely into the frame.

Both our silver and black frames are anodized to prevent the alloy from oxidation and will keep the frames looking perfect for years.

We are offering a 10% discount to Rennlist members with the code "RENNLIST" at checkout.

We have a few other cool products in the works that I hope to bring to market after the first of the year in addition to carrying a curated selection of American and German made tools and equipment to outfit your garage.

Thank You for taking the time to check us out at http://www.ffgarage.com

Right on Tom!

Nice to see a new vendor drop in to this forum that has pretty much been taken over by a single vendor. Where are you located?

What do you recommend for my big back end's plate frame?

Hi Randy -

I'm in Portland, Oregon. I put a Black plate frame on my own black car. I think it makes it look pretty stealth.

OK, ordered one. Very nice order/checkout procedure on your site.

Does it include the mounting bolts? If so, are they available in black?

No, i don't include the bolts. We sell some really nice Security Torx made in Stainless Steel with an included German Made wrench. Stainless doesn't come in black so they are silver in color (but won't ever rust).

Thanks so much for your business!

Hmmm, OK - how much are those? I didn't see them on offer when I bought the frame. I'll have them added to the order once I know the price.

You might consider adding that as a buy option - or info about them - to each frame description.

Thanks.

They are on the same page as the plate frames. https://ffgarage.com/collections/license-plate-frames

Discount code will work for them as well.
I’ll ship them with your plate frame if you order them.

I would take one out and have a look. If its a machine screw, its probably a 6mm. Most of the new Porsches use a self-tapping.

OK, will submit an order for the screws in a couple hours. You can hold my order until then so you can ship all at once.
