    Got a new DIY project for you guys today: bottle opener.

    After relocating my license plate, I wanted to replace the hole with one of these:


    But they were no longer available. So I made my own!

    The JKS relocation kit came with a small metal plate to cover the hole. I used that as my outline and it's a piece of the final assembly.


    I then drew my design:


    Time to start cutting!


    Tried it out and the design evolved as I kept testing the fit.


    Clamp them together for final cuts:


    Bent by hand to same curvature:


    Bent it outward:


    Clamp and drill holes to match:


    Spray painted:


    I mounted it up and tried it out. Failure. I forgot about the bumper so the bottle had to invert to open. I tried with a Corona and ended with beer sprayed all over me.


    So...bent it out in a new way.




    And changed up the shape of the hole.


    Here it is all done!








    15 second video showing it work:
