Default New 2013 GT, where to find aftermarket license plate brackets

Hi everyone,

I just took home a 2013 GT Premium coupe (pictures to come tomorrow possibly) that I ordered about 5 weeks ago. I had some problems with the dealership because they missed the accessories package order even though we went over the build sheet multiple times, but in a way that is okay because I feel that the spoiler kind of blocks some of the rear view.

1) I want to buy a front license plate bracket that looks nice, and is not in an awkward position. I instructed the dealer to not put the dealer bracket on, and I was aware beforehand that the factory drills mounting holes in the bumper. I guess I want something that is not hidden, and or has a hidden capability. I want more of a nice looking center mount, but I seem to only find stuff fitting the 12 model not the 13 model.

2) Also, can anyone tell me how many holes are drilled by the factory for the stock spoiler?
Thanks

Welcome to Craig's Custom Mustang Brackets

He has just prefabbed some. I bought one and it looks great. E mail him as they are not on his site.

Thank you,
I tried calling a few times but no one is there so it goes to the answering machine.
I guess they are at lunch.

I would also second Craig's. No drill holes needed. And I would also suggest to email him. He's pretty good at responding. Last I remember, he's active duty military, so this is not his regular gig.

I don't know if I can use that one, even though it looks really nice. My brothers Corvette scrapes going up and down the drive way, and it can barely crawl over the speed bumps. I think that would get ripped off easily. I may be wrong, but I have no idea.

I emailed Craig, so I will see what he replies back with.

Just spoke to Craig on the phone. Bracket ordered, he had them in black for the 2013 model!
Thank you Craig, I can't wait to install it!

Also, thank you all for the links to his website.

I have the same one as you. Mine is crooked just like yours too when "down". One side of mine is loose. Project Saturday Choate is going to fix that tomorrow with a few beers, a Rhino Ramp or two and screwdriver. Can't stand it any longer!
