    I stupidly allowed my CPO process to drill into my nosecone and now I want to get a holder that mounts my license place underneath.

    I now have these holes in my nosecone, and short of buying a new nosecone, what do you recommend to cover these holes so they blend in better? I know they sell plugs, but wondering if there is any other sort of material I can fill these with?

    Thinking of getting this so at least the Nosecone doesn't have the license plate smack in the middle of it:

    Great point! I just noticed that too and was wondering what that was. So I guess covering that is out of the question and then I need to mount the license plate off to the side, which probably looks even worse.....I think it's easier to move to another state that doesn't require front plates :)

    Take front plate, attach it to removed bracket. Store in frunk/trunk area. If or when the police would like to ask you about it... "it just came off 10 minutes earlier, officer." And hope for a lucky break... ;)

    EDIT: Here is a variation of the mounting option:

    My goal is to move it below Nosecone but with the AP radar there, it doesn’t look like I have many options other than risking a ticket with the fact I have tinted windows and a flashy color, I am thinking can be an expensive decision.
