Sorry, my car is a little dirty. As promised, here are the pics...

I got the screws from Home Depot. Unfortunately they only had two left in black so that's why the center one is silver. Anyway you cannot see the screws so screw it.

As you can see, the thumb screws worked out great. It literally takes seconds to attach or remove the plate and without the need of any tools. I also painted the ends of the thumbscrews black.

I lined the back of my plate and about a 1/4" on the edges to form a border using a darker silver duct tape (not the regular colored duct tape) to prevent it from scratching the bumper. The duct tape border actually makes the plate look better IMO.

Just make sure you use a washer on the end since the thumbscrews don't have a flat bottom.

You can barley tell the bracket is on the car unless you're really looking for it.
