    Front plate bracket hole repair

    Today I noticed how the front plate is ruining the look of my CTS, and whoever installed the bracket mounted it crooked.

    I came across this. Has anyone tried to fix the holes on the front bumper? It is not worth getting a new bumper for a couple holes.

    Those will work. Pricey, but they will do the job if that is the way you want to go.

    Dont waste your money on bumperplugs, you can get the same thing from ANY auto parts store. They're called christmas tree plugs. You can buy a pack for a dollar or two and match it with a can of duplicolor, be sure to use 2 or 3 coats. Drill it out to whatever size the plug is and you're good to go. Plus, the plugs I used are A LOT thinner and less visible than the bumperplugs.
