    front plate mounting

    I will be picking up my 997tt next week. It's black on black and should be a real beauty. It's going to be my first Porsche after a string of Corvette's (2-ZO6 C5's last).

    I am going to mount the front plate (when I get them from the DMV). I don't want to give any extra reasons to stop me and get cited. I have seen the tow hook mount. Is there any other way to make the mounting more palatable?

    Re: front plate mounting

    Be careful to use the proper length screws so you only put two holes into the front fascia, that way if you decide to remove it at a later date you only have two holes to plug. On my car the dealer used long screws to secure the license plate on top and I have four holes through the bumper - too many to plug!

    Re: front plate mounting

    Bumperplugs.com can be very helpful when you decide to take off the plate

    Re: front plate mounting

    I went with an entirely different approach so as to avoid holes in painted surfaces. I put holes through the top of the black filler pane,--not sure how that would work with the Turbo....see pic. That was where I ultimately rigged a mount from.

    Re: front plate mounting

    Do you have any photos of your mod with a plate attached?

    Thanks.

    Re: front plate mounting

    without plate is better


    Re: front plate mounting

    IMO, Dan's got the right idea (above).

    This one apparently drills UP into not horizontally into bumper.

    Re: front plate mounting

    I'll try and post a shot with the plate mounted. I also use it as a grounding monitor,--the bottom of the plate grinds on the road just before the front air dam...
