Does anyone know where to get a cheap front plate filler? The cheapest I could find was over $130!! That's just redic! I doubt I would be able to find one in a junkyard as I know they are hard to find. Maybe someone has done more research than me though. This is not something I really need or want but, if I can get one for a low cost, why not? If not, I plan on getting a blank SS plate and applying my yet un-used "Autobot" 3d emblem on it. Yes, I am a HUGE transformers fan. Who wouldn't want their car to transform into a robot?

Not I. I'm tired of everyone and their brother slapping autobot and transformer logos on their cars.

But, it sounds like you're just going for a decorative front plate (not badges all around the car) which is a lot more subtle and classy.

Meh, ever since they came out with the "Bumblebee" special edition Camaro, that's not unique either.

imo it's just played out.

Yeah I'd agree I like taking my emblems off and keeping the car clean.

But I could see the camaro guys doing a bumblebee replica that's pretty cool I guess if your into it.

The original bumble bee was a 2006 gto with a custom body kit, that's gay they produced a bumblebee camaro.
I've never heard this, and a quick google search for "original bumblebee gto" gives me lots and lots of camaros...

Interesting. I've always loved the last gen GTO (well, all GTOs actually lol). They're just so sleek looking (and fast) lol.

Oh that is a sweet pic.

Yeah my bad about the hijack but it did have to do with transformers lol

G25 your good with body work why not get a plastic lisence plate of some kind and body filler and make your own deal for your car?

I was thinking of that as well. It would look sleeker than the plate filler, because there'd be no panel gap

Yeah. To fit it on an LS or base bumper you have to cut off the tabs on the back and use 3M double-sided tape. Which also means, if someone is brave enough they could rip it off the car. I suppose I could have cut openings in the bumper for the tabs to slide into. Too late now!

G25, your best bet is to keep a look out on the forums and craigslist/Ebay for someone selling one for cheap. I picked up mine from a fellow member here and on naioa. Good luck.

Wow somehow I missed all these posts in my "user cp". Huh anyways thanks for all the tips guys. Maybe someday I will try to fill it on my own. I agree with ryd a plate filler would add gaps and look kinda weird. Thanks ejbiers for the confidence in me!
