RE: Licence Plate Install
Good catch - sharp eye. I originally thought about putting felt onto the plate or frame as you also have. Much easier effort too. But with body motion / roll, the felt will be fixed solid to the plate but will want to move against the paint - with light dust and the slightest movement under the felt - light scuffing may occur on the paint. With pads adhered to the paint they will not move. The rear has dust there 1 mile after washing it. Likely it's not an issue for most anyways.
