Hello,

Does anybody know if it's possible to add a front plastic cover over the front licence plate of the Tesla provided front mount plate? Trying to protect my plates from the upcoming winter.

Is it possible to just buy a plastic cover and just screw it into place on top of the exiting plate?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Not sure about your area, but in Florida covering the license plate is illegal (even if it's clear). It's worth checking...

Yes. You can get clear, smoke or blue at CTC:

You will need longer screws for the front with a plate cover. Try 1/2” or (3/4” with the point clipped off) #8 Stainless screws from HD or CTC. I also use a washer under the plastic cup the cap snaps on to. BE CAREFUL WITH SCREW LENGTH ON THE FRONT SO YOU DON’T PUNCTURE YOUR BUMPER!!!
