    Help Removable Front License Plate Mount

    Has anyone installed the Removable Front License Plate Mount from ZIP on their 2013 GS Convertible?

    http://www.zip-corvette.com/ProductDetails/ProductDetails.aspx?pid={9535b845-0afd-4933-b14c-d94cc786903e}&gid={47d2a09e-7f09-43ec-b40f-d0eb6191db3d}&GroupName=License+Plates+%26+Brackets&pname=06-13+Z06%2fGS+Removable+Front+License+Plate+Mount&Referer=&Alias=&ptct=SGR-SR&CTitle=&

    What's the best way to secure the bracket over the skid plate?

    I now have a C6 and went with the center mount holder. I think it looks cleaner. I bought that one first and did not like the side mount. The center mount was easier to install too.

    I have the one from GM that mounts on either side. GS have existing quick disconnects. No drilling. Easy pull and push on and off. Initially went outside of GM and did not like the install. Looks good as well. Would not want a plate front and center.

    Move to a state that doesn't require front plates and you won't care how the plate is mounted.

    I carry mine in the car but one of these days........I will get a fixit ticket and have to deal with it. There is no good place to mount a front plate in my opinion.....

    Agree. Would rather have no plate. Just not moving at this time. went with new plate first three months. Then pulled over by county mounty. He just wanted a closer look at the new GS. Went with removable side plate. Maybe I will move.

    I do the same thing, carry it with me. Have not put it on the car yet. Bought the car in 2008.

    I did purchase the removable plate holder and I am very pleased with it. Love that I can remove it to clean the car as well as not have to have the plate stuck in the middle of the nose. Only concern is a bit of a rattle, even though it is snug .

    The plate definitely takes away from that beautiful front end - it hides that "nasty" look.
    I don't want to to do but this is Massachusetts (taxachusetts) and they're always looking for ways to make $$.

    Used the one from thedoubleAA.com that bolts between facia and splitter and sits in the middle. Thougt offset looked funny.

    GDG,
    Not sure if you have this on the car by now, but the bracket should hang below the skid bar.
    The bolt would go above it, and it acts like a clamp around the skid bar.
    I hope this helps, if you have any questions, feel free.

    I finally got caught by a local Highway Patrolman and he said I had to get something mounted so I bought the Zip plate mount and it had to go in the middle on my GS. I had to fabricate a bit but got it all on and it worked great but hung down a bit and I would keep scraping it on low entrences. That would knock it in the stowed position so I now keep it in the down and back position and if I get stopped I will say....oops....was cleaning the car officer and forgot to put it back up and pull it up and he should say ok leave it up....and I will say ok you bet......and then put it back down when I get home......it's called civil disobedeance...or however you spell it....
