Hinging front license plate bracket
Do you guys have one of those front License Plate brackets that allows the front plate to hinge flat while driving due to the rush of air but remains in its upright position at a standstill?
The miata guys have a kit you can buy: http://www.teammiata.com/TM305.htm

I was wondering if you could just make this a DIY kind of deal. Let me know

Doing so would allow the most amount of air to be flowed through the radiator
