front license plate bracket

Hi all,

l've been trying to find a thread about a custom front plate mount for a while now. l remember seeing one that someone had that bolted to the underneath of the airdam, and swiveled down and then up to be displayed, then you could just loosen the bolts on the side, and swing it back underneath for shows or whatever. Was a pretty slick looking setup, and l'd like to find it. Anybody remember this? l did a search with a couple of different words and/or phrases, but no luck. Thanks!

Got you covered, pics and Instructions to follow.... I would not drill so I had to come up with one that worked....

The Front Plate frame is made out of a "T" Barjoist connector sold at Lowes or at Home Depot

Here is a link to where my Pics are. They should explain how it is done. If you have any questions, just give me a yell...

To take it off or put it on is about 3 mins. Hold up well at speeds well over 100mph

Thanks for the help, guys... plate won't work behind grill for two reasons, first can't be obstructed in any way, (can't even put a clear cover over it), and it would block part of my intercooler radiator.
DaChief, that's a sweet setup, but the one l'd seen was actually a two piece design that was mounted the same, but the plate could be loosened and swung down and under so it wouldn't be seen at all. l may do your setup if l don't find the other soon. we have to have a front plate here in NY, and l just don't want to give the PD an excuse to pull me over for anything. l have a few PBA cards and a PD patch on the dash, but l'd rather just not deal with the hassle, but l refuse to pop my virgin front bumper's cherry with a drill...

check out swiftmotorsports.com , they have one similar to what l'd seen. l thought it was on this forum, but may have been mistaken. l may do their version, they even have a motorized one, so after you get pulled over, you can hit the switch and ask the cop what the heck he is talking about, there's a plate on the front, lol....

I put a non-motorized one on our Vette.

I'd thought plenty about the scenario you'd mentioned with a motorized one, though.

I bought a cheap bracket and zip tied it to the honeycombs...attached the plate and bent the bottom of the plate up so that it wouldn't rub against the spoiler...it doesn't look to bad...no drilling and gets the job done. About $9 bucks.
