It looks good. I like the chrome rim around the plate.

You did the right thing getting that plate color combo.

Also a TX resident, my wife pointed out that plate color option a while back.

Looks as good as a front plate can...

Mine will be going on a black or TSG C7.

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.

C7AMFAST, it looks factory built in, blends in well with the front.

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.

I saw that but 170 is a little pricey when you can just modify the mount you got with your vette.

aero panel...trimmed for a clean look with increased air flow
smoked cover...curved with heat gun
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.

C7Amfast, I wonder how it would look without the front plate silver frame. Now I'm thinking the black plate would blend better with the black mount without the frame the more I look at it.
