It's actually behind the grille. Hard to see in the photo. I had the hideaway one but it kept getting hit entering and exiting parking lots.

Thats cool - I had tied my plate with tie wraps but I think that looks better - although, will our local authorities classify it as an "obstructed" plate?

or just move to a state where you don't need a front plate? or wait, you're in Canada, not familiar with rules up there.

I've seen the hideaway ones when I was living in Komifornia -- thought they were pretty slick. Even in a state where a front plate was required, I never put one on .... moved 8 years later with never a ticket.

Yeah... I gave up on that hideaway plate as well after I walked in front of the car while putting air in the tires for a day at the track, brushed it with my leg and it broke off!

I don't know if you noticed when we were in Oshawa a couple of weeks ago for the Camaro Homecoming, but I'm using black zip ties for now to attach the stock frame on the lower mesh. It works great, especially with the 2 lower tabs fitting in nicely on the lowest part of the grille, but I took it off for a lapping day at Mosport a couple of weeks ago and it's a bit of a pain re-attaching that frame with new ties, threading through the mesh etc. when you want to put it back on!
...but still better than punching the holes for those rivets in front fascia!

So how is it attached to the grille and where?

Best regards,

Elie

Nice idea. Please don't come back and complain when Johnny Law pulls you over though. :)
