    Default Does anyone have a front hide-a-plate on their XLR?

    I live in Illinois so a front plate is required. I was thinking about the hide-a-plate for my car. I see them on corvettes all the time. Anyone have any experience or have one installed on their XLR?

    I live in Washington state which requires both plates but allows you to put the front plate in the windshield if you don't have a front holder. Just has to be visible.

    I thought about running one of those, but, have enough "grounding" issues without adding extra inches underneath the front.

    I opted to go with a no drill mount from

    Store - Sly Brackets

    because I would rather pay daily tickets than drill into my baby, Quinn. I chose the Bozzmount-MG for mesh grills. I had to perform a little "surgery" on the lower grill (a snip here and there to be able to get the mounting bracket in, but, better to snip the plastic than drill the body as far as I'm concerned Does anyone have a front hide-a-plate on their XLR?) but, I've ran them a week and everything seems purrrfect!

    I own my Dream Car. What ELSE could a girl ask for? Ahem...how about plenty of gas, plenty of time and a straight stretch of road as smooth as a baby's butt so I can drive her the way she deserves!

    One of our members has on of these. He removed a small section of the lower grille as opposed to under the bumper.
