Default 2011 GT/CS front license plate mounting

Did not like the options I found available so decided to make my own. What do you guys think?

Looks good to me lol. The one they threw on mine is kinda bulky. Luckily the black makes it not to noticeable.

It's blocking the radiator. I'm not sure if that would make a difference or not though. Otherwise it looks good, better than having a hole drilled in your bumper

Buy the retractable front plate holder from AM. It works really nice on the GT/CS front end...

Front plates look pretty bad. Luckily in FL we don't need them. But when I lived in NY where they had front plates, I never ran one for 15 years and never had an issue...it's not a moving violation anyway.

Looks like it's blocking the air flow quite a bit, also I can't imagine what that angle does for deflection into the valance. Also, I think it looks kind of weird. Just my.02

Check out Craig's Custom Brackets for a bracket that needs no drilling.

Yup, have the Craigs Custom bracket and like it a lot. Can install or remove the plate and bracket in about 30 seconds. Looks very minimal when in place.

Thanks for your input. I will have to watch my engine temperature though I don't expect any issues in MN.

I also own Craig's Custom Braket. I no longer use it since the black rubber stopper on it stained my white bumper

I got 'em on both my Shelby's and I've had no problems. I usually just throw the front plates in the trunk and if I get pulled over I'll put it on in 30 seconds.

That doesn't help after you get stopped.

They only ask where it is here and if you can produce it and mount it you are good to go.
