Default Retractable Lisence Plates

I've got a Pteazer front end.. I don't want to ruin the look with a lisence plate.. Does anyone know of where I can find a Lisence plate that I can mount in the lower front that can retract under the front bumper or basicall hideaway..I believe that some of the Rods have these type of retractable systems? thanks Kevin

Pretty sure that where they require a front plate it's illegal to have it retract - unless you want it for shows.

Fabricate a mounting bracket, maybe off to one side, which you can remove for shows.

I thought that it would look pretty trick with the plate located in the lower front right.. Just tuck the plate underneath at shows instead of having to remove it all the time..

All the ones I've seen fold under (http://www.yearwood.com/LicenseFrameshtm/GTP3.asp) which can be a problem considering ho low our noses are to the ground. Probably wouldn't be too hard to rig something similar to the retracting touch screens you see on head units though, just need a motor and guides.
