Aloha guys.

Don't know why I didn't notice this long ago, and I could be mistaken with 85 Gutless I had before current SS.

Did our car came with front license plate holder? That square plastic piece. Did we have one?

There is a U(somewhat, more squared off) shaped plastic bracket for the SS front plate. Often they break since it’s relatively thin.

if your state doesn't require it, it might not have some with one.

Thanks guys. I don't even have that U-shaped bracket. Guess I have to think of something. My plate is all bent out of shape..............

Yep, that's the one, looks like a good copy of the original, didn't know it was made aftermarket. "U" shaped is the best I could describe it.

To avoid drilling holes into my bumper, I fabricated my own so it bolts to the support bar behind the bumper. Looks oem without holes.

We had the holes already - so the u-shape works well.

for the other approach - here is an example
