Gettin Pulled Over for License plate...

Im tired of gettin pulled over for not having a front license plate attached to the front bumper, i dont want to drill holes to attached it, is there one out there that i dont have to bolt on and drill holes? Although i have been gettin warnings im tired of wasting my time and have decided to put it on, there hasnt been one since i bought the car.

Any suggestions??

You can try trimming the front plate a little smaller and then using zip ties to mount it to your lower grill.

I'm sure it isn't legal to 'mod' a license plate but of you don't have to take much off you might get away with it.

I would just put the front plate bracket on since your a front plate state and be done with the headaches.

I don't know if this helps, but what I did with another car I owned...

I went to the hardware store and found a light but sturdy piece of
L-Shaped aluminum, or you could use two L-shaped braCkets or braces where one section is longer than the other. A piece of foam weather stripping cut to size. and either screws or preferably two nuts and bolts with secure fasteners to attach the setup to the bumper.. My setup ended up looking really clean, with virtually none of the setup visible, only leaving a license plate attached to the front of my car wherever I chose to set it. The license plate will attach using the two lower holes and an additional set of nuts and bolts.

Go google "show and go license plate" there is a very useful collapsable license plate holder out there now that will allow u to tuck the plate away when u want and pull it out when u want.

I've had mine stuck in the corner of my windsheild for a while now. as long as they can see it when standing in front of the car its ok, in Texas anyways.

It's not much differant then those sport bikes putting thier plates way up under the rear fender where you can bearly see it.

Had my plate on the corner of windshield on my Silverado and G8 GT and got harrassed all the time by troopers and police, finally gave in and installed on front of vehicle, installed it in front as soon as i got my GTO, didn't want problems. This was in Austin TX, just depends on who's on patrol I guess.

Unless you are planning on moving to another state in the near future that does not require a front plate, what is the big deal with drilling in and using the factory bracket, all the other aftermarket brackets and locations look getto compared to the factory bracket.
