Look Ma "NO HOLES" front license plate solution

So I needed to put my front license plate on but I didn't want to drill holes in my new M-tech and I refuse to pay $65 for a tow hook mount...yes I'm cheap, so what.

Solution...$10 plate mount that works like a charm.





This is completely adjustable so lift or lower as you wish



What ya think?

You should start selling these and retire to an island. Looks much better than a tow hook bracket too.

Very clean solution yet its a center mount which looks alota cooler vs the ones mounted on the side. Looks like it will prolly flop around being its mounted on the fleemzy grille.

Nope had one on my other car for 4 years and no flopping...the washers don't come with the kit but they do help a bit on the sturdiness

that is a great idea, i am wondering if the wind will rub the plate agianst the bumper at high speeds and cause scratches.

I got that covered... I put padded tape on the backside of the plate. That gap that you guys see is only on the edges...it's cuz of the curvature of the bumper

at high speeds though, would the top part of the plate touch the paint? Would it scratch?
