Front plate ideas

I am looking to buy a front plate bracket that does not require drilling into the front bumper...or hopefully not drilling into anything.... any ideas or pics.... any good sites to buy? i would even settle for some small suction cups that could be attached to the license plate and put on the windshield.... thanks everyone

Double-sided automotive 3M tape. Maybe? Velcro certainly won't hold.

You could probably have a shop devise a mount that attaches underneath the fascia or through the openings and wraps up in front of the fascia without actually touching it.

Either way, a plate on front is a plate on front. Might as well drill it and then plug it when you get ready to sell.

I had actually forgot about his until he posted this thread, and I ordered my Craigs custom bracket as soon as I found the link. Just hope it beats my car here.

thats pretty cool, any special place to buy the suction cups, or can you go to just about any random hardware store and get it done?
