Have a 2002 Focus and need to attach a front plate. However there are only two tiny holes and I cannot find away to get behind the bumper to attach the nuts.
Anyone done this?
Thanks much in advance,

Go to an auto parts store and get the license plate screws NOT bolts. The holes are small to begin with because they are just to get the screw started and positioned correctly.

Yeah. Ford's bright idea of how to attach the front plate is to use two self tapping style screws right into the front bumper cover. [screwy] I didn't know this until AFTER the dealer had already effed up my bumper. Oh well.

I'd rather have my plate on my bumper than my dash(very, very, very, very friken ricey!).
It's the law in Washington state that you have a plate in the front somewhere.
A friend of mine got a ticket because his front plate was lying down on the dash and the cop couldn't see it.
It does suck though that you need to bore into the front bumper to put your front plate on.

I think someone used some really good double sided tape to mount theirs so they could preserve the bumper.
Thank you very much folks. Appreciate the responses. :)
