That always there, but cant really do much about it someone wants track me down. One way or the other they will. I just feel, its silly to cover up the license plate. Its not that I am giving my passport or SSN out on the internet.
But as you said, there is always a risk.
I will try not to cut off anyone

Agreed. I used to claybar all my friends cars right out of highschool (around 2002 or so) and nobody know about it back then. people thought i was nuts massaging a car with a bar of what looked like play-doh. They were blown away by how smooth the paint feels. I took some pretty nasty stains off of my friends old toyota corolla back in the day using a claybar. stains he could never get off with years of washing. his paint turned from a dull gray to a bright WHITE. whole new color.
