Suggestions for Front license plate

Hi All.

My car does not have any pre-drilled holes for the front License plate. That is a requirement here in California to have the front plate unfortunately.

Anyone have a suggestion for a non-drill front plate bracket? Or can I get Chevy to provide one?

I have a new to me - used 2017 Traverse LS.

Buy online or order from dealer. Dealer will charge more, but after you pay shipping for online, it may be a wash.

Real problem is for me in a State without a front license plate purchasing from a State with a two plate requirement, either have buy some stupid vanity plate for the existing holder or remove it and stick push pins in the holes.



May as well drill the holes and go OEM bracket won't see the holes behind it anyway, and beats sticking it on with traditional no-hole methods, i.e. duct tape or gorilla glue.

Agreed - plus I've always thought that License plates on Grills look stupid.

They also make a convenient flat target for radar guns; aerodynamic shaped front ends tend to scatter waves making it difficult to get a clean bounce back signal.



No license plates on Nighthawks or Raptors.
