Has anyone done that? How did it work out?
My dealer did not mount the front plate bracket. (I have it, and could mount it, but would rather not stick this big plastic holder on the front). The dealer said most customers want to have no holes drilled in the front bumper cover, and will then install a Show and Go (or Hide & Go) (or Stow & Go) flip-up license bracket.
I looked into these, and they don't look very practical for ski country. Would definitely fill with snow or ice or road salt, and freeze in place. Plus they will get ripped off if you chin your baby on a parking curb.
I bought two smoked bubble covers for the front and back plates, and plan to mount the front flush to the bumper with a vinyl backer to prevent abrasion. Has anyone done something like this? How did it work out? Do you have any advice for installation, or is it a simple matter of drill a pilot and bolt in place?
