Did the trick

I bought the manual version of this retractable license plate frame. I installed it on the lower lip of my 2016 Silverado and didn't have to drill any holes to do so. I was able to use the screws that hold the truck's lower bumper trim to attach the stainless steel bar that was supplied with the kit. I had to cut the bar into 2 short pieces and bend them to an appropriate angle to meet with the holes of the plate bracket. I then grabbed 2 short screws, 2 washers, and 2 nuts then attach the sliding bracket to the stainless bars.
The only downside was that I couldn't place the plate bracket as far back as I wanted to keep everything hidden. If I placed it too far back the license plate while in the up position would be at a very seep angle pointing towards the ground. But I still think my Silverado looks a lot better than the stock plate bracket.

Its a quick and very easy install if you own and can use a few simple hand tools. Drill 3 small holes and insert three small screws and you have a custom looking job all complete. It works and looks great on my 2006 GTO! They provide very clear instructions (with pictures).

As we all know, license plates are an ugly scar on the face of a Corvette. For those of you who live in civilization where a license plate is not required on the front of a vehicle, well, good for you! For the rest of us, a way of hiding our plate is the next best thing. This item works perfectly and is well worth the cost. Besides, one more toy to play with. In fact, it looks so good, that I traded in my Vette for another one after I put it on, because my dealer offered me a great price in trade. So, I guess it did end up being kind of expensive.

This solved my problem regarding having to have a front license plate on my 2001 Corvette. Now I can use the blank that finishes off the front of the car, and still have a license plate to be legal.

I love it because I don't have to drill holes in my new painted bumper. Also it abides by Texas law with showing a front plates. I'm great with that. Thanks
