Greetings!<br>My '00 HPT 5M originally came from a state that didn't require front license plates (IN), but my state (VT) does. I've managed to avoid mounting the factory front H bracket up to this point, but my yearly inspection is coming due at the end of this month, and I'm afraid I can't avoid it any longer. I've done some research on the internet to see how other particular owners have mounted their front plates without drilling the bumper covers, and came across a neat one for the MINI:<p><A HREF="http://www.images.gominigo.com/INSTRUCTIONS-GMG_NOHOLES_EURO.pdf" TARGET="_blank">http://www.images.gominigo.com...O.pdf</A><p>Sadly, the C70 uses an old-style tow loop behind the front bumper cover. I did note that there is a hole, possibly threaded, in the underside of the metal bumper bar, visible with the tow hook cover removed. I'd like to see if this hole will accept a bolt (and subsequently a piece of bent bar stock that extends outside of the bumper cover, et c.). <br>This is one idea I've been contemplating.<p>Has anyone here tried a non-permanent front plate mounting, and if so, would you be willing to share the details?
