    Here is a photo of how close the twill weave of the Seibon license plate frame compared to the GT's weave. They are made in California & I measured them at 2mm thick. Most CF frames are only 1mm.

    PS I used 5mm heat resistant nylon spacers behind the plate with Ti drilled washers & bolts. I like Ti as much as Bony liked CF. I even have Ti valve stem caps!

    This is the link for the Ti valve stem caps. You may want to shorten them. I have the natural ones.

    I have the internal hex but you could choose external hex or button head. The OEM faster is 15mm long but if you use a 5mm spacer you'll need the 20mm bolt.

    I bought the nylon spacers from the local hardware store.
