Speaking of license plate holders, since my new (used) Camaro came from a rear tag state, and I'm I a front and rear tag state, it doesn't have a front tag holder at all. Do I buy a front tag bracket from GM, and how are they installed? I'm guessing I have to get the drill out. :(

if you do a search on here, someone makes a bracket that you wont have to drill holes in your bumper

I would hate living in a state that required front plates. They look like an ugly zit on a beautiful car. I know there's not much you guys can do about it though. Sucks.

I have the JacFab that uses two existing bolts under the front valance.
It is bent to follow the contour of the front end.
It does not shake at high speeds as shown on their video.
Easy on and off, 1 minute. My car is lowered one inch and on steep angles it scrapes the bottom of the plate.
Better than the body and a good curb stop indicator.

I have the show and go plate holder. I I'd not want to screw it in to my bumper, so I actually made a bracket that mounts up to one of the bumper bolts and then I mounted the show and go to that. I sprayed plastidip on the piece I made to keep it from scratching my car. Here's a couple of pics.

my stow and show is a little less pronounced and I just mounted it with the motor in the relief in the lower bumpers bolt area and screwed it right to the bumper which is plastic, ( you see the motor sticks up not down and there fore mounting it flat is impossible unless you have a relief area for the motor to stick up) I t comes with plumbing strap in case people really want it straighter or if you have a splitter lip etc.
I wired mine right to the poitive terminal on the battery terminal to jump the car in the engine area, and grounded to the car by the same terminal....easy breasy .

Also i rarely use it except to be in a show or show it off, i have it at a slight back angle and it has pads to keep it form rubbing the paint. And mine matches the angle of the front and totally retracts under the car with only about 1/4 to 1/2 inches showing of the track. Durability.....Scrape mine damn near every day on my angled driveway have had no problem, but the plae it is mounted is not the most attractive..just most convienient.

Not sure if the following was covered. One is manual and the other remote.

Not sure about ease of installation.
Good luck.

I have a buddy with a steel fab shop and he made this one for me - it attaches to the 2 bolts that hold the bumper on underneath. It was FREE so I'm not complaining one bit.

Perfect. That's what I wanted but didn't have the metal to make it.
