no build, just buy...lol buy it at Autozone. Bell License plate mounting bracket for $9.99. My bumper was off cuz I was putting the metal brackets on so it was a breeze installing the thing. When I installed it on my other car, I had to take the under shield and wiggle my arm so I can work with the washer and bolt

Great idea! Wish I'd thought about that before they drilled my bumper!

That actually looks like the cleanest non-drilled-in plate holder I've ever seen. Nicely done.

I'm interested in the laser jamming effects of tilting the plate down. But aesthetically this is the best looking plate mount out there. Nice find.

is that like a plate mount kit for $10 or you assembled the parts for $10, if the latter- what are the exact items if you don't mind?

DUDE! Where were you two weeks ago? I ordered Skene Design low-profile plate mount (similar to your solution but uses two screws to attach to the underside of the front bumper) for $49.99 - it looks GREAT and it's strong/adjustable but I get the feeling there's a pretty healthy-sized profit margin built in.

Good looking out
