Question Help: Where do i put these license plates?

Hi
I have these Forrest Gump novelty license plates lying around. For the love of God i can not figure out where to put them on my car. One plate says "Run Forrest Run" and the other says "Stop Forrest Stop". Here is a pic:

I'd appreciate your thoughts on where to put these plates. Or not to put them? I mean, just because they are "license plates" doesn't mean i necessarily have to put them on my car. But what would you do if you had them?

Thanks,
Amitoj

I would try to put them on the front and rear bumpers if I had space and if does not obstruct the number plates. This would mean some drilling.
If nothing else works I would give it free to someone who might find it more useful than just sticking to the car.

To be honest. This aint exactly legal in this part of the world. So you could be asking for trouble.

IMO, do not put it in the standard license slot, but probably you can glue it on the side or if your ride is an SUV, then all the better

This is the only reason I never picked up these, as they are not legal and can always give the cops a reason to stop you. There were some amazing plates of the similar type available at a new auto accessory shop in forum mall. Costs around 700 bucks, but then again, i didnt know where to put them

@amit,

Better exchange them for some good stickers at auto accessory shop if they cant be installed or sell it on e-bay.

Id say stick the STOP one on the rear bumper with 2 side tape.. Forget bout the Blue one cause it wouldnt make sense putting it in the front or back. Nice plates though! Which car?

Cheers!

I was thinking of using that both sides sticky tape kinda thingy. The one that is used for fixing an idol on the dashboard, e.g. No drilling holes at all.

Yeah, if nothing else, there is the give away thread after all.

No no i am not planning to replace my existing number plates with these! I was thinking maybe put one on the right hand corner of rear bumper and left hand corner of front bumper.

Glad you liked them. I have an OHC.

How about the red one on the left hand corner of rear bumper and blue one on the right hand corner? Something like you see those red and green dots on some cabs indicating overtake from right only. This would tell people to stop if they are overtaking from left, and run like mad if they are trying to overtake from right

@Amitoj.

What you have in mind sounds great. Either the right hand side of the rear bumper or even the RHS of the number plate slot
