My apologies if this has already been posted, tried searching but did not find anything conclusive.

I just picked up a 97 firehawk and live in area where front plates are required.

As the front end of the 93-97 firehawks (of forumla) are unique vs the 98-02, is there a front license plate mount option or solution out there that does not require drilling onto the front bumper?

I recall the camaros had a front licence plate bracket that mounted to the frame underneath bumper but due to the very different front of the firebird it will not work.

I appreciate any feedback info or guidance.

Thanks.

Welcome a'board', ..., 8)
I'd suggest searching the LS1Tech.com website for the terms front license, etc.
Or even Google can be your friend sometimes.

Thanks for the reply.

Poked around google didn't find anything conclusive for the 93-97 firehawk / formula front bumper.

Will try ls1tech and see what comes up there.

I would go with something like this instead of drilling in the front bumper.

https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sle-59388

This might not fit a firebird, but I am sure there is somebody that is making ones like this that will fit.

Just once you drill the bumper, there is no going back short of replacing it.

That will work. I've thought about it for my 01 with threaded rivets and wing screws for easy removal and installation for car shows

Thanks for the info.

I have the 1997 firehawk so the front end like this below:

http://www.firebirdgallery.com/4th%20Ge ... fk15.1.jpg

Does anyone here with a 93-97 firehawk or formula use a bracket that bolted to the frame for the front license plate?

I saw the SLP ones and was interested till I found out it will only work on the camaro. The 93-97 firehawk / formula front end is much more pointy and curved making it more difficult to work with.
