Flip down trailer license plate

The car hauler plate used to be under the left side tail light where it got beat up by rocks and road debris.  It was hard to see and prone to be torn off so it got moved to the dovetail on a flip down cover.
        Plate light is LED so slamming the cover down won't kill it.
                        Flipped down for loading over the dovetail
   Hole to lift it with. Hinge is 1/2 steel round and 1/2 schedule 80 pipe. Hinge has enough clearance so rust shouldn't stick it.
    Frame is 2X1/4 angle pieced together from scrap that was too short. Milled the slot in the support arm on my new to me Tree vertical mill.
                                                   Install in progress
