Licence plate bracket

Hi Y'all

Long time lurker, I recently got a 2010 SES to replace my "deerly" departed 2005 ST and I noticed that the SES don't have a licence plate bracket on the front of the car. I really don't want to drill and insert anchors straight into the bumper to install a licence plate. Do y'all have any ideas or Ford Part numbers that will cover an SES?

I thank y'all for your time

Bob

if it doesn't have one then your not required to put one on (at least not in nevada) Just leave it off, unless your state requires that you add one for an added cost. i love the look of them without, I say leave it that way.

I know this is a old thread...

but when I search for a front plate for the SES, I found nothing...so I wanted to help.

I used toggle bolts through the lower grill. Fits perfect down there.

I'm not defacing my Focus with a license plate on the front... There are holes in the bumper, but I'm not using them. Almost tempted to put a Ford Racing plate down low to the side, but meh...

Copys can run my plate when passing at opposite directions, only if they follow. Have not been hassled yet - none of my vehicles run a front plate, legal or not.

Or if you're like me your car came from a state that required it so the holes were there. On my Dodge though the best looking solution was a plate mount with zip ties; the plate secured nicely to the mount so it looked good, and the zip ties hid under the plate on the mount.

Yeah mine came out of Arizona, so it didn't have holes
