Smile Q: License plate bracket?

I own a 2011 Saleen Mustang. I do not want to drill holes in the front for the license plate. Can anyone tell me if there is a bracket I can use that does not require drilling holes?
Thanks

Default Front plate bracket

That looks the bracket that I need. Where are they sold?
Here is a picture of the front of my car and I'm not drilling any holes just for a license plate. I found one that holds the plate and is removable but I do not believe it will fit my car. I believe it's called Sho-n-stow or something like that.
Thanks for all the help,

The issue you may have is... the entire lower opening has a mesh grill insert.

the "Craigs Custom Mounting Brackets" are ordered directly from him via his web site. Also I think he offers a small discount for being a club member (if you are).

Ive also found that the brackets will work on more cars than he has listed. I think he is very conservative on the applications he knows for sure fit, and he has seen 1st hand.

I sent Craig an email and ask him if this will work on my car.
Thanks to everyone for letting me know about this product. No one wants to drill.

Well, I did email Craig at CC Mustang brackets and he said that he did not have anything yet that will fit my car. I don't know what the difference is ???
Does anyone have any other ideas about attaching this plate ? I'm just not drilling holes in the front of my car.
Thanks

The plate holder may work if you remove the lower mesh grill insert. These grill inserts prevent mounting access for the plate holder.

"Or" mount you plate using double sided tape. This was the enthusiast method of attaching front plates all through the 1990s.

"Or" don't run a front plate and simply pay the fines. Another enthusiast method.

Thanks for the advise, I'll figure something out.
Also, I like your car. I see you don't run with a plate either.
Thanks, Richard

On our 08 GT500 that has a mesh style lower opening, I use wire ties. I really only put it on once a year for state inspections, BUT I do keep a supply in the trunk with the plate, so if stopped for it, say "was at a show took it off and forgot to put it back on", and ask if the LEO if they would let me put it back on (never been stopped for it, however).

Had the same problem with 11-025. Ended up using one of the hideaway plates from American Muscle and had to drill a couple of small holes under the front fascia. I thought it was the better option than drilling holes in the front of the bumper.

I know this is an old post but I used small black zip ties in the lower screen. I had to trim my plate just a very little bit on the top and bottom to get it to fit in the slot.
