    Alright guys i need some ideas!
    I've got a new front bumper w/out holes for the license plate and i would like to keep it that way. Cop just pulled me over and told me to get a license plate on there as soon as possible.
    Has anyone put on a front license plate without making holes and without causing any damage.

    Pics would be really helpful too!

    thanks

    Yeah i hear you man. I told him i'd put it in the front window but he was telling me if i get into an accident it'll hit me in the face! I think i'll end up doing that and taking that risk!

    I had sticks of juicy fruit gum in my glove compartment in my high school sedan- Got into an accident...There was a stick in the back on top of the decklet/speakers...a piece on the road outside the car (only my window was open and none broke out) and there were several pieces around the front two seats.

    Not to mention the fact that depending on the laws in your state may not allow you to just throw it on your dash...

    A buddy of mine used Velcro to hold his onto his Mini Cooper to get it signed off.

    Thats a good idea but i think i was looking for something thats more permanent. I was looking around the internet for some kind of "no hole" front license plate kit but it only seems to be for mini coops..nothing for tacomas

    If you plan on making it permanent then why not just use the holes like Toyota intended?
    One less thing to get LEO's attention.

    Anyone use zip ties...seems like it would scratch your paint after long use?
