i actually got the idea from that, realized i could do it much cheaper was just a lucky coincidence that i found it fit so well in the tight mesh

It is removeable. Heat it up a little and slide some floss through it and goo gone.

ya thats true but this one slides in and out like a bracket, just drove about 50 miles of high speed semi rough highway driving, plate didnt budge a mm. made me pretty confident that i dont have to worry about it.

It will never come off, in my state I'm required to have a front plate. I could not get myself to drill into the front bumper and the velcro application allowed me to mold the plate to the front bumper for a clean low profile application.

Great idea, thanks for sharing. How did you attach the license plate to the L brackets?
