New Here. Hi to All! Need to Mount a License Bracket.

Hi,

I am happy to have found this forum. I have been having some issues with my 2006 cobalt and would love to get some input.

The most pressing issue is that I have moved from a state that did not require a front license tag to be displayed. Having purchased the car in Florida, the from bumper is pristine with no bracket. I am now in New Jersey and find myself needing a front tag. I am wanting to avoid taking it to the dealership as that is typically a more expensive solution.

Does anyone have any idea regarding the best method for mounting the bracket on the front bumper and what bracket and mounting screws etc. to purchase?

Thanks much!!

*shakes fist* (ive been doing that alot lately, aparantly i need to work on my rage...HAHAHAHAHAHA)

Anyways, Back on topic

WELCOME TO YC!

I have to have a stupid front tag too, but i bought my car in VA so it was already mounted on the car when i bought it... you could just use reg screws & drill it right into the bumper, that's how THE DEALERSHIP did my Scion tC when i bought it, they didnt even give me a bracket... so i guess its technically all up to you & how you want it to look & stuff... if that made any sense...lol

There are also brackets out there that can hid the plate when not needing it, unsure of where you can find one though.

In Washington State, all you need is to have your front plate displayed. So a lot of people place the front plate on their front dash against the windshield. DO NOT PLACE THE PLATE ON THE AIR BAG.
