Looking for a place that has nice looking license plate frames. Relatively thin frame in a nice flat black or satin black finish. Also where I can have HELLCAT printed on the bottom of it, but small, nothing large and obnoxious.

Anybody have a good idea here?

Also, know it sounds cheesy, but looking for a nice seat bottom cover for the seats.
The only option my car doesn't have, which I wish it did, was the Laguna leather. Easy to clean and maintain leather seats. But it doesn't, so I'd like to at least cover the bottom cushion of the seat.
All black cover, something that will keep sweat, and anything else that might be on my pants/shorts from getting on the seats.

Ideas here too?

Thanks all

id recommend just a basic plain black license plate frame.....the frame is there to minimize the look of the license plate....getting a larger one with HELLCAT written on it will make your plate stand out which takes away from the car.....license plates dont look good or stylish....they are just somethat that has to be there....why make it stand out more.....i prefer to hide it......you could buy a plain one and have it painted to match your exact color

i had seat covers on my 2011 IE the whole time i owned it....never got to enjoy the seats...i told myself id never own another car that needs to be covered up to protect it......id skip the seat covers....when they wear spend the $$ and recover them...they will look just fine as is for many years.....they are ventilated...butt sweat shouldnt be an issue....i think your over thinking your protection...enjoy your car....if you wish your seats to be perfect forever that will take away from the enjoyment of your car and how it looks.....and they still will get mushed and deformed under your car seat.....its just a car seat

use a towel for butt sweat?

i had neoprene seat covers on my IE...they worked very well....i doubt you can just buy the bottoms, so youll end up buying the whole seat....mine cost around $300 for the fronts

search and you will find options on line

you could also just spend $1500 and get them reupholstered in leather ?

Yes the license plate frame that I want is very thin, metal with a black satin finish, or a finish like they have around the exhaust pipes. But literally, just 1/4" wide or so, just enough to cover the ugly license plate edging. Then in very small letters centered in the middle, in a black gloss lettering or something, say HELLCAT. To the point you almost can't see it unless you are standing close, not something people can read from 2 CL's back and in some bright obnoxious color. I'm more stealthy. So black on black essentially.

As for the seat cover. I hear you. I lived in Phoenix most of my life and then Los Angeles for a long time too. But I'm in the South now. I've learned there is a thing here called humidity, it's a *****. LOL
So getting into the car having some sweat on your legs is not uncommon in the summer months.
So even though I haven't had seat covers on a car in like 20 years (I've had leather seats on all my cars since graduating college, I wanted to test the waters of just classy, FITTED bottom seat covers for the car. Again, so it's almost not even noticeable to the eye as you walk by and look inside.

just found billetframes.com

Edit:
I'm not going to get writing on the frame now. Decided on a personalized plate for the first time ever. Got: H3LLCAT
So I'll just get a nice Satin Black thin license plate frame for it now.

I just rescued this from the late 80's early '90s collection of my old Mopar stuff....although the chrome metal frame isn't the greatest for a match, it sure beats the ugly plastic dealer frame! I'll still be on the watch for a plate bracket that matches better......but for now, here it is....

I went to a big box auto store that starts with an O and bought a carbon fiber look a like frame for my pitch black. I have the real carbon fiber on another car, and you can't tell the difference except in the wallet. The pattern is subtle but gives it a little interest besides being plain black plastic. May be hard to tell in this pic.

n the past I have been fairly successful integrating a personalized tag and its frame.
Examples:











The last two plates were my screen name on two other Mopar forums. The frames were custom made by Billet Technology
