NEW PRODUCT: No Drill front plate brackets

Craig's Custom Mustang Brackets
When I see a good product I get it for my car. If I'm going to put it on my car, I'll put in on my web site. This is a great idea and we stocked up with most every kit available
30 of the 50 U.S. States require a front license plate to be displayed. Ford has designed the stock Mustang front fascia's with pre-molded dimples (in most cases) which provide a means/location to attach the license plate using boring type screws. Not only does this ruin your front fascia, it can reasonably reduce the possibility of resale of the car to potential customers in on of the other 20 states and what if you relocate to one of these other 20 states. Now you’re left with two ugly holes in the front of your car.
So if you've "Been tempting fate without a front plate", the small amount you pay now will be much less painful than the $75-$150 you will pay later in traffic citation fees and court costs. And it looks good also! This bracket is hand crafted out of quality aluminum and comes with all stainless steel hardware. What does that mean? "No rust, no corrosion and show quality!"
•Satin powder coated surface
•Requires no maintenance
•Aluminum Construction
•Stainless Steel Hardware
•Easy to install
•100% Satisfaction Guarantee
No Drilling.
Eliminates the concern for drilling directly into the bumper, causing permanent holes.
Easy to Install.
Installation takes only a few easy steps and can be in place in less than 10 minutes.
No rust, no corrosion and show quality.
Hand crafted out of quality aluminum and comes with all stainless steel hardware.
No scratches or annoying vibrating sounds.
Rubber bumper protection in place, so no metal parts of the bracket ever touch the painted portion of the car.

Just $44.95 - $47.95
These are not a 1 size fits all. CCMustang Brackets took the time to measure GT's, V6's, GT500's Roush's, Saleens and so on and made kits specific to each model for a perfect fit!

I have one from Craig, and I love it. Very easy to put on and take off when you want the look or are going through a car wash.

The Craig bracket will not work on 2010-11 V6 because our cars have that lower honeycomb grill and a GT does not.

I came up with a solution and made a thread about it here ...

Nice bracket. Simple and effective. No holes in bumper. Easily removable. I just moved from PA to MO and need a front license plate bracket. The price seems high for the materials involved, but then again, the standard cheap injection-molded plastic plate holder from Ford (which probably only costs Ford pennies to make) is pretty much the same price (about $45).

A GT front plate cover will work for a Boss 302. The fascia is a stock GT fascia, but the lower portions are different. I don't believe that will affect mounting though.

I like to put a thin black trim frame around my plates, do you make the bracket with holes for the bottom of the license plate, If not would you drill holes and provide matching bolts?

Are you 100% sure it will work on a Boss and be aesthetically and actually level (not leaning sideways, forward or slanting off kilter)?

The area this attaches to is the same on the BOSS and the GT, so yes it will fit.
It only uses the top bolt holes on the plate and we do not modify them to fit other situations.
If it's "leaning sideways, forward or slanting off kilter" it's not installed correctly.

Thanks
Jay

How sturdy are these brackets? I'm awaiting delivery of my GT and am thinking of asking the dealer to not drill the license plate holes. Can this bracket be easily moved by bumping it (such as washing the car)?

They are designed for easy on and easy off. You can keep it installed at all times if you wish, but it is not recommended for car washes.

The idea is to be legal and not drill the bumper. The video shows exactly how it works on the 2010-up Mustang.

I've been driving my Boss around with my JLT purchased Craig's Custom Mustang bracket since March 29th (the day I picked her up) with no issues. It's a great product.

I've had one on my Shelby GT/SC since February 2008. Also without issue.

+1!

I ordered mine before my car even came in. Takes 20 seconds to take it on/off when I'm washing the car. Simple, elegant design, and it won't scratch the front fascia.

I used your V6 bracket on my 3D Carbon Boy Racer Front Fascia (I had to put a little more angle on the tabs that slide into and behind the grille).

Looking at the car from the side, you can almost not even tell it's on the car.
