Default Front plate mounting

How are people mounting your front plate so that you don't have to bolt it to the bumper insert?

Also, how careful do you need to be with parking to make sure you don't destroy it?

Oh so you built a bracket that allowed the plate to be flipped up or down?

Wow thats a lot more involved than I expected.

yes, it was involved. I never actually finished it before I sold the car. I wanted it to automatic. you could build that pretty easily with some scrap metal, just don't make it fold.

go look at your car. where the bumper faces the GROUND between the fog lights there are 2 holes where the stock plate filler would mount
