Any info on this license plate topper would be appreciated.
It’s a really cool license plate topper.

I had one of those but lost it when the entire front plate fell off from mounting bolt fatigue. I remember wondering what I ran over. When I got to my destination, I saw it was gone. I went back to find it but it was on the beach road on a weekend and it was gone. I was heartbroken at losing the topper and my Dad's CBI plate.

My guess is that the topper is a collectors' item - people who bought one (or who bought two, like me) will most likely want to keep it for their truck/trucks.

The topper is VERY cool. I would stand in line for the next round of them. I bet they would go like hotcakes topped with homemade maple syrup!

I haven't looked into 3-D printers. I wonder if these could be made on one of them?

Pretty much anything can be made on a 3D printer. But the ones that make things in metal are WAY expensive. But those could be done in plastic.
