Front License Plate Mount

Does anyone have any advice or insight about how I can attach my license plate to my front bumper? I'd like to avoid drilling and using rivet nuts. What is the best (closest to stock) way to mount the plate?

Thank you.

Mine has the holes. Should I just bolt it straight on like that? I was hoping to find a bracket for it.

Do you think that Land Rover in the UK might or even Land Rover North America might be able to find it or if it is still available? How did you mount your plate?

I got a new bumper recently, its just a plain straight bumper. I plan to instal a brush guard too.

Thank you for the suggestion.

If someone feels like stamping out some of these, I'd be interested.

Thank you.
Go to your local auto parts store and buy a universal plastic license plate mount. It will bolt on through the plate mount holes in the bumper, screw your plate on to the mount and be done with it.

The only holes on the 110 bumper are on the top and they are wide apart for the UK front plate.
