Hey folks,

Just wondering whether anyone has any experience with the billet style rear license plate holders. I just installed one and the screws won't draw completely tight in the square plastic nuts on the vehicle. I'm concerned there's sufficient vibration to back the screws out and have the plate and holder fall off. Just wondering whether anyone has had the same experience, and has anything to recommend. Was thinking of adding a drop of Loctite onto the threads of the screw but I'm not sure that will react well with the cheap plastic nuts. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks, Scott.

Hi:

Not sure what you mean by the term "Billet" I have an OEM (factory GM) Carbon Flash Rear License Plate Frame to install when the car arrives. Is this similar to what your are referring to? RSVP. I won't install if this is the situation. TX...

Go to your GM's dealer and get a screw from them that will properly fit into your car's square plastic nuts. Then take that screw to a local store that sells nuts, bolts and screws, and get ones, same size and thread count, etc that would look perfect for your aluminum billet plate frame.

Alternately, contact the place where you bought your billet plate, or its manufacturer, and ask them for matching screws.

Thank you. I checked the screws that came with the vehicle versus what West Coast Corvette sent and it appears the pitch of the thread is different. I'll try and match the chrome plated heads on the wrong screws to those that fit.
