I have this sitting on my shelf at the moment. No, I'm not going to use it on my car since it has the original plates. I have been trying to get my hands on this since 2003, I finally got it from Mike Young a couple weeks ago.

Make an appointment at the DMV now. It will be several more weeks out but you will avoid the 4 hour line to pick up your plates. They should be there soon.
