well for starters.....you need to remove the stock bracket. and believe it or not....its not screwed on, its RIVITED on. So you will need to drill out the center of the rivit and remove the bracket. At that point you will have 4 holes in the facia, and will need to decide on how you want to fix that. You can either take it to a body shop and have them filled in and the facia repainted...... Or you could get some color matching plugs.

YES it does.....it works like a champ. I have taken my car to the DIY quite a few times to knock off the "BIG DIRT" and bugs before driving home to hand wash my car.

I took my car through an auto wash ONE time, and the bracket seemed to be fine, however a big strip of the blue spinning washer thing got wedged in between the rear bumper cover and the quarter panel and created a gap there, even after I pulled it out... Must have stressed the plastic or something, so I will NEVER take the car through another autowash. But I made it through at least once with the bracket on; also have about 50 1/4 mile passes with it, and no problems.

There are currently no discount codes/coupons available, however we do occasionaly have a sale offering a discount, or free shipping, usually around major holidays.

Very nice bracket, but almost $100 including shipping.

Well worth the price though. Jason does a hell of a job with them. Super happy I bought one and now do not have to worry about any more $115 no front plate tickets.

You could also look at Eliminator Bracket if you are planning on ground effects. They are the only one that I know of that does not require to cut thru the GFX to get to the bolts on the underside of the car. It sandwiches a plate into the lower grill, and then using the stock license plate holder, attaches spring mounted lock clips to latch the plate to the grill. It can be removed for car shows if you like. I also like to remove it to get the bugs off when I wash the car.

It is pricy, but worth it IMHO as I have the GM GFX and no one else had a bracket that didn't need drilling or cutting. Take a look if you like. The directions were clear and the shipping was prompt. http://www.eliminatorbracket.com/

The general shipped cost I see mostly is around $89 and change give or take $3-4 dollars depending on location...

For comparison I checked shipped cost to me for 2 similar brackets from "the competitors"... Both of them cost more than our product, and with similar shipping costs. One was $115.99, and the other was $116.31 shipped to my door. ~$90 sounds much better, at least to me

Not trying to start a debate, but this is the first time I've actually ever researched the others, and not that I felt I was unreasonable before, after getting those numbers, I certainly don't feel bad.

Are you planning on designing one for the ZL1?

Yes, I just got the measurements needed to start a prototype from a new ZL1 owner in the mail yesterday. Hoping to get a mock up sent out soon.

Also have a gm factory gfx bracket in the works, hope to be able to try the first one on the local mule car next weekend!

We currently have some "Scratch & Dent" sale items listed here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4970519 for anyone that is interested in getting one of these at a nice discount. Mechanically perfect, minor cosmetic issues that will be hidden once the license plate is installed.
