front plate!

i am thinking about moving my front plate to the lower driver side corner of my bumper anyone have any ideas on how to fill in the factory cutback in the bumper cover if i cant figure that out probably wont do it i think it would look odd to move the plate and still see where it used to be from the factory.

My last car i kept the front plate up to the side of the rearview mirror.. 13 years no problem.
My current front plate i have painted it all black except an outline of the plate letter/number, and the state name on top.
Looks great in the black front panel on my 2012 Focus.
Around here way too many folks have rear plate obscurations, with tinted covers, plate filled up with stickers so no one can read the plate, color removed from letters on purpose etc, for the law enforcement to say anything about my trivial alteration.

i will be looking into the piece from 3dcarbon thanks slammed.

i was thinking about filing it to but given the cover is plastic i think bondo or such a product would crack and chip over time, and from my past experience with bondo its not good to run it more then 1/4in and thats still pretty thick

i wish i could do that to both my plates but here in CA im pretty sure id get tickets for it constantly and dont need to add to my constant fix it tickets any how..
