    Re: Front Plate Bracket Removal and Hole Repair - 18 XTS

    There was a site called bumperplugs.com that folks used to go to if they no longer needed a front license and the bracket or if they wanted to lower the license bracket by installing it upside down. The bracket ruined the look of the 2nd GEN CTS's so to relocate the license bracket they installed bumper plugs to cover up the original holes drilled by the dealer. The site bumperplugs.com still exists and they had plugs in the same colors that Cadillacs came in.

    I looked, they were $35 and I didn't find the exact color "Radiant Silver Metallic" or GM Touch-Up called "Switchblade Silver Metallic" that matched the Cadillac Color code. (GAN, 17U, WA636R). I needed the touchup anyway and 4 plugs were $2.56 at Loews. As stated, I was concerned about Paint adhesion but so far so good.

    t looks like the site has not kept current with all the GM colors. Changing license plate brackets was more common 10 years ago.
