Default 4th gen front license plate bracket

fter buying a 2010 a few months ago I got annoyed by the lack of front plate bracket when my plate got bent at the car wash the first time it got cleaned. I searched the forums and didn't really find any solutions so here's what I did....

A stock lic plate bracket off the wifes 2009 Ford Escape (yes a ford part) I picked up at the local dealer for $25 that came with screws and rivits to attach it with.

To start off I cut off the bottom tabs that attach to the Ford bumper, to do so I just used a pair of snips and sanded the edges a little bit to smooth it out.

After cutting off the bottom tabs

Next I used an old cereal box to make a template by cutting two pieces and taping them together to form the contour of the front bumper

Next use the template to transfer the pattern to the new bracket and trim it off.

After cutting the sides to the profile of the bumper you can sand it to smooth it out a bit and get a final tight fit. the final product took me all of 30 min to do this mod, WELL WORTH IT!

you have the option to use screws ot rivits to mount your new bracket
