Carbon Fiber Rear License Backing

Will I get a lot of rattle from this Carbon Fiber Rear License Backing? I already get some rattling even with a padding under my plate/frame, will this make it worse? I'm not sure if I should get it or not.

on the back of the backing? Hmmm just seems there's got to be a good way to stop the rattling. Do you like your backing? It looks good smile It doesn't stick out at all or anything? Fairly simple to install?

not sure what it's called but you can just go to home depot or sumpin. the dynomat they sell by feet so you can get just a small amount and put it behind the license backing.

'Carbon Fiber Rear License Backing' from CarbignCraft - $125
http://www.carbigncraft.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=6



Installation is simple and takes only a few minutes... Comes with all hardware required for installation which includes two low-profile nuts and a key -- Since only you will have the key to remove it, there won't be any worry about theft. thumbsup
(The key is a unique wrench that's used to install the included inverted hex screws)

The screws fasten it securely to your hatch. The bottom of the backing folds under the hatch's lip so there are absolutely no visible gaps.

...

The installation for this piece is very simple and doesn't really require a guide - but some have asked for it, so I have written one ( probably in too much detail spineyes )

INSTALLATION:

[*] Remove your current License Plate and frame.
[*] With clean damp towel, Wipe your current License Plate and area around where you're installing to.
[*] Place your new CarbonFiber License Backing over the car's license-mounting holes.
[*] Have a friend hold your new piece while you place your License Plate (and License Plate Frame if desired) over the mounting holes.
[*] By hand, use the two included bolts to attach your new pieces. Before tightening with the included wrench, push your license backing up-wards so that the bottom-lip of the back is snug with the bottom lip of your trunk.
[*] Tighten the bolts using the included wrench.

And you're done thumbsup
