Curved Plate Mod

After a lot of fabricating because you cannot just buy it for the 2013 RGU, I have finished the curved plate mod.

Rushmore didn't happen until 14 right? I had a 2012, the one in my sig pic and I bought a curved plate frame for it that bolted right on.

Overtime pays more because of what you're missing, money isn't everything.

Correct on the Rushmore. Was you 2012 an Ultra? I can find bolt ons for Customs and Specials but looked for almost a year for something for my RGU.
I finally bought the one that fit the C/S and had to do some major mods to get it to fit.

I had to cut the mouse ears off and drill it out so it used the blinker wire holes to mount it. It turned out really sweet, but not without its uturns and a lot of coffee and thought.

My guess would be that it is an Ultra and not a Custom or Special.
