So I like hooks. Recently, Vintage Trailer Supply started making THE hook – the Byam Hook. Wally Byam, founder of Airstream, had these hooks all over his trailer during his famous caravans. Of course I removed my old hooks and installed these!

My license plate holder was rusting from the inside.

I bought a new one from Vintage Trailer Supply that is correct for the year. I installed it and there you go!

When I installed the license plate holder, it had a hole left over from the old unit.

I used an olympic rivet that leaves a tongue.

You cut the tongue off with wire cutters.

and … find off the top fo the rivet. This rivet doesn’t have the hole in the middle, so no water can get through it!
