Front license plate mount?

I'm trying to find a solution to get the front plate off of my bumper since she's going into the body shop anyway. Has anyone had any success with a certain kind of touchless mount? I'm going to have this ugly black box in the front of the car removed so I need a plate solution [no, having no plate is not an option I'm not in the mood to be pulled over and ticketed so we can sidestep all the "don't use one in front" conversations

Thanks guys

Sorry Chicky, I thought the R170 had a tow hook with easy access for the gominigo plate.

Anyway, here's the number for you. And this guy is in CHICAGO of all places. How convenient is that!

Hmm... I've been very happy with the GoMiniGo solution, but mine is an R171. So is there no front tow hook that you can tap into for the R170?

The following suggests there is one, but it is covered by the grille. I imagine you could cut a hole wide enough for the bolt to go through the grille and mount a compatible GoMiniGo plate holder.

http://www.google.com/imgres?sa=X&hl...tart=0&ndsp=28

I hope linking to a Benzworld page isn't a violation of this site's policies. I actually found it by searching Google images for SLK towhook. If it is, just delete the link and OP can search Google images.

Yeah, I have the gominigo.com solution too, didn't realize that they didn't have a R170 solution, never dawned on me. Note: when I get into Indiana for the April meet, the plate comes off!!!!!! LOL, it's like taking the collar off the Dawg!

That electric option stinger posted above is looking very appealing, and the retail store is local. I'm going to visit them this weekend and see what goodies I can acquire.

I took a long look at that myself, a little James Bondish, but cool! Most of the ones I saw seemed to lean to it fitting on vettes, but I saw more than one maker of it. I was hoping someone already had it installed first! LOL

Here are some "no-holes" solutions:

These are on 171s but they incorporate zip-ties, well-nuts, weather stripping and other assorted goodies that should translate directly to the 170.

I've reached out to the vendor for a group buy discount. I'll let you know what happens.
