Me neither:

Luckily the guy I bought the car from didn't either, so he decided to chance a ticket, and just didn't mount a front plate. I don't want a ticket, even an equipment violation, so I wanted to install the front plate.

Cad angle brackets and an off-the-rack plate mount. There are two holes in the lower fascia that are just the right distance apart, so I just ran bolts thru with fender washers and bolted the angle to the fascia, then the plate to the mount ... VOILA! An unmarred bumper, total outlay about seven bucks.

Oh, and for the curious 'KAPUNA' is the Hawaiian word for 'wise one' or 'elder' ... wife's car, I'm not too wise :-\.
