    I got A dealer trade car that was still on the boat and it has the little plate on the grill for the plate. Does anyone know how to remove them?

    I have those on mine too. As soon as I have a moment to figure out to get them off, I'll post in here.

    OK, cool. I'm actually going to go try it right now. Did you end up scratching or breaking anything?

    when you get a chance if you can take a picture that would be help a lot. I'm going to attempt this once i get back home from the holidays. The way the plate is supposed to sit would scratch the chrome or i sit the plate high and use the bottom screws. I'd rather just go without front plates and not have to look at those huge EU screw holes
