**Don't use that bracket for your Turbo PT, it will restrict the airflow too much.**

It's been a year now and I'm still looking to relocate the front plate on my GT, can't stand the OEM look of that plate.

When the weather gets better I want to try a few things, one would be to flip the OEM upside down a npossibly trim it so the plate sits flatter against the car.

Let me know if you find something better.

PianT. I thought about taking OEM holder off and
using some kind of spacer. drill two holes in the plate
and put on chrome caps and see how it looks.And add
chrome license frame.Might work[:I]Bad idea.four
holes, don't think it would look good.

Georgia doesn't require a front plate, but alot of people here think a plate with the old Georgia State flag (the one with the Confederate flag) is still a must have on the front.

I used a flat plastic plate holder from aid auto stores.
Didnt like the orginal either, had to bend plate slightly
to contour of bumper.
