Well, I was afraid to admit on CR that I am a closet Vdubber. I have a 73 standard that originally wasn't even good for parts but now is appraised at $18,000. Welcome, no matter what you drive, if you modify it to suit yourself, you are a hotrodder.

So are you saying it's just 2 sided, and rotates so the backside of plate faces outward when key is turned off ?

No, I think I've got it now. Sounds a lot easier than the idea I had in mind,
I guess I was over thinking it.
Thanks.
