Mounting a front plate.

I live in a state that requires two plates on auto's. Anyone have a good idea or have found a nice looking front plate mount? I can't believe the GM directions want me to pop rivit the mount that came with the car! I need some help for a solution.

I have found some, but they don't seem to show how the bracket mounts.

Check how I mounted mine on the link below. No drilling. Hope this helps.

I live in a state like that too, but my front plate mount is in my trunk.

I live in Ohio where the ticket for no front plate is about $135 which I don't need to spend and with my luck, I would get a ticket. I bought the Show n go motorized retractable holder. I have not put it on yet, the car is hybernating for winter, but it will be on as soon as there is a break in the weather. I bought it at summit racing for $134.

I purchased the remote controlled Show-n-go as well and it works great. I used double stick to mount it and it holds reaaly well. So no holes anywhere on front or the bottom. At a meet we had in Camarillo yesterday everyone was impressed with it. I just put it on as a test initially but because of everyones reaction I will leave it on. See how long that double stick tape lasts. Altec Performance is who makes it I believe. They also have a manual version for less.
