i used this right up to install my plate on just the mesh grill. put a buffer between the plate and lower bumper. never have to drill into the bumper and it its below the OEM mounting point. kind of like the "jdm" plate relocater haha.

Thanku whoever brought this thread back from the dead...does this affect radiator cooling at all, if this is a dumb question i apologize, but living in SoCal and being in the San Fernando where it gets 110+ this is a concern...

Has anyone ever come up with a way to mount the license plate towards the side of the bumper? I don't want to put the plate in the center of my lower grill blocking the airflow to my intercooler. Here are examples of what I'm hoping to pull off:
