Default New front end done, what to do with stupid license plat

Hey guys I got the gt500 front end conversion all done. I was wondering where I should put the license plate and if there are some alternatives? It is required by law here. I drove to the ford dealer to checkout their gt500s but none have a front plate on them. I will put up a thread with before and after pics tomorrow when its light out

when I had my BMW 325is I drove around with the plate on the inside of the windshield sitting on the dash and I live in St. Louis where they require plates on the front. Only was pulled over once and after I showed the cop where it was, he didn't care

Don't do the plate. If you get pulled over they will give you a warning, and then you get this.

Maybe see if you can mount it in the lower grille? Don't know if it will clear but it's a shot.

Oh, I am sure there is a way (there is always a way nowdays)
but with no personal experience (no front plate required in AR)
there is no way of knowing how easy or how hard it would be....

Find one you want to purchase, link me to it and I will see
if the installation instructions are available online to do some
detective work as to how they are wired and how they function...

Its the one linked right above in the video. I dont know much about car wiring. But the dealer will probably install it for me.
