Just picked up my Model S Red, 85, 19 in, tech, sound, air suspen,My birthday gift, today and was told that there is a way to mount the front lic plate without drilling into the nose cone. Has any one heard of this?
this one is simple and not invasive
there were different way to put it but I found this method a nice job.
There are multiple threads on this topic.
I chose to do it this way and it seems to work fine -
I think we have a winner! LOL
I can see to find that J bolt. Where did you guys find it? Went to both ACE and Home Depot, no luck.
I got the bolt at Home Depot - the only length they had was 4.5 inches, I believe - had to use a hack saw to cut it to length.
I used the toggle bolts with lock washers and they worked very well. You also have some room to make minor adjustments to center the plate.
@ayemumin--I like your idea. What size toggle bolts did you use?
i used industrial strength velcro strips to attach my front license plate below the nose cone and it holds up really well, and easily removable when going through a car wash... yes the Model S paint can withstand an automated car wash with no problem!
I ordered a Show-n-Go manual for the front. I'm hoping that it will be installed by the delivery team when I take delivery mid-September. I'll post an update when it's done.
Did the service center tell you they would install your show-n-go for you? What do they charge?
Can you post pics of your front plate mounted w/ industrial Velcro?
How far below the bumper is the show n go when retracted? I have a dig mount that is down about an inch and I often scrape when parking head on against a curb.
@201w77 - sure thing i will post photos of my velcro mounted front license plate, but i'm a newbie at this - how can i add photos in my comments?
