Actually, I like the look with the plate better than the look without the plate. I like how it breaks up the chrome bar on the grille. I will definitely mount my front CA plate with the aeroplate.
By the way, the "Big Ugly" as I like to call it, which sits up on top of the Corvette's hood, not only looks hideous, but also will surely scratch the paint underneath on the nose if one uses it without taking precautions.
C7Jake that's what I was thinking of doing if I ever attach my front plate. Had the car for a couple of month, been passed by a few police and still haven't been pulled over.
With how hot this car runs, I just don't like how much of the rad it covers.
According to video interview with Chief Designer Kirk Bennion, also a HPDE instructor, the car has better aero with the panel, that the only time it actually provides better cooling is for track use.
A great option, allowing for ten seconds to remove or re-install the whole bracket and plate assembly, is to drill very small holes in the license plate, immediately in line with the aero bracket mounting "L hook," (which hooks/hold the unit to the back of the front grill), then push in with the screwdriver (as you turn the bracket's "L shaped" mounting hook 90 degrees. Do same with other one and your plate and bracket combo pops on or off without any visible showing of it after it is removed -- great for car shows, pictures, or similar.
Congratulations for being legal in Texas
I on the other hand only have a plate on
the rear. They will have to catch me.
Only corvette that I have had that had a
front plate was my 63 split window coupe.
