Looks great and I will definitely be doing this if I replace my bumper.
2 things though. In hindsight, you probably could've just put the bend with an offset to one side instead of cutting. And secondly, why not bolt the plate the bracket? Would it be too low and bracket would be showing? Maybe then you could use some thick L shaped brackets to mount the plate higher.
edit: and I don't mean higher like in the way of the headlight, I mean just the way you have it now, considering your plate holes are probably an inch higher than the bracket...
