DIY Front License Plate Mount

I'm not sure this is worthy of a DIY thread, but thought I would post it anyways just in case it helps someone. I just received my plates in the mail, but realized i didn't have mounting holes in my bumper. I was about to drill holes, but then decided I really didn't want to do that. So I came up with a way of mounting them utilizing the front grill. Check it out...

Seen this on a few other cars, this is definitely a great option for no holes on the front bumper. Just gotta watch out for any snags that might pull or pry the plate from the front grill. Great job!

Put some felt on the back of the license plate. This will prevent scratches when your plates bang against the bumper when you're driving at high speeds.

Looks nice! I just use Velcro on the bumper. It's easy and comes right off when I want to.
