Caution: -Bad English- sorry

the idea came when changing new bumper .. noticed that be4 tis using promote bumper my engine will cooling quicker compare current bumper (special edition). Maybe the design itself (promote holes bigger than SE bumper) cause this problem. Plus, adding reg. plate no. will block more cold air goin' through the radiator (really?)

So... I need the flipper for the plate.

items needed:
2 x motor (fm digital aircond blower box)
metal bracket
power window switch
DIY tools

Motor (use 2 for left and right)


Using 1 side motor only, the other side need to remove motor inside the casing). Solder 2 wires direct to motor coz i dun hv the socket.






made a additional holder fm thick aluminium, than rivet to the holder @ motor casing. Both side.


Perfect (so far)


try put @bumper




Cutting and clearance checking process using cardbod




Seal around using gasket gum (what a waste). Supposed use silicon gum but lazy enuff go to hardware shop.


Put back @bumper and connect 2 motor holder with metal bracket. Than put the reg plate.


Using this diagram on power window switch to control flip up and down


Done. Dunno how to put video here..but can view here d3c3pt1c0n: DIY Homemade Flipper

Result: Ok la so far..Next project will be indicator for fully flipped up or fully flipped down.

Nice DIY...but I got 1 question. Can the motor withstand the weather e.g. rain and water splash? Coz the casing doesnt look like water proof and has electronic circuit running inside

oredi sealed around the casing with silicon glue (pic 11). didn't use the circuit board coz i solder the wires direct to motor.

I have a thought. Say you're travelling 120km/h along the highway and you activate the switch. Will the motor be strong enough to handle the wind resistance and all that?

test oredi @160-170kmh speed all the way (gopeng-ipoh PLUS) .. both position (up and down) no problem.



red line - the area still covered by the plate, so no possibility to crack/broken (normal position)
2 layer metal bracket - enough oredi to hold the plate (flip position)
