Default New front plate mount

Finally got around to this project. It was harder that I thought it'd be. Had to notch the top of the plate frame to get it to fit snug. And there ain't a whole lot of room to get tools in the right places under there. But since I gotta run a front plate, may as well not have it stickin' out of the bumper, huh??

The also aint any room to get a decent pic in there either. I just ran big ol' screws up through the plate frame into the bottom of the bumper cover. Then a couple of small screws through the back of the plate fram into the lover "grill" piece...

I might have to do that. Seeing that I will now need a front plate (ohio).

Do laws state that the plate has to be visiable while in motion? I was thinking of putting it on so sort of hinge/spring device so when moving the plate swung up under the car due to the air pushing on the plate, and then when stopped/ going slower it will fold back down.

Sorry bud, police want to be able to see that plate while driving. That'* why "failure to display" can be called a moving violation.
Back to topic: I like the way that plate looks mounted closer like that. Think I'll be making a few bumper changes in near future
