well doesn't ford actually have a front license plate mount for the svtf? i mean, of course it'd require holes to be drilled, but it'd be a stock-look.

if you look carefully there are little dimples in the front bumper. If you go to ford and order a front plate bracket it will even come with a diagram and rivets to use.
