I dont think so you might have to take it to a body shop. I dont think it will cost much to paint.

With his truck being White Diamond, its probably $50+ to have painted.

While you're replacing it it may help to fab up some larger hangers for the top of the cover. I almost lost my cover coming down the interstate, when I got to work it was hanging badly. The upper tabs aren't long enough to secure the cover, and it will eventually pop out again. I used some small self-tapping screws to attach longer peices of polymer/plastic to the existing tabs and it's stayed put ever since. I also used self-tapping screws to attach the bottom....which can't be seen unless you crwal under the vehicle. Good luck.

I want to use my but being from Ontario, you have to have a license plate on the front. I like the look of the cover on, maybe next week I'll try it out and see if I get pull over or not.

Living in Massachusetts, I have to wear front and rear plates. My truck is white diamond, so I'll UPS you mine, if you still need it.

Hi Rolex,

Can you tell me what size screws you used to attach the front license plate cover? I just bought an '05 Black Escalade on Sunday and want to install this cover, but can't seem to find a screw to fit under there.

Thanks!

Hmmm, if you're wanting to use the factory mounting holes you may want to appeal to your local dealership for help. I seriously doubt they'd charge you for it since they were the ones who removed them (probably to put on one of their "free advertisement" name plates:D ). I basically used 3/4 inch sheet metal screws to permantly attach the cover to the front bumper cover, because the factory screw holes were torn/srtipped and wouldn't sustain the weight of the cover.
