Default "No Holes" License Plate Bracket and Bumper Plugs Installation

Installed on a 2011 CT200h Obsidian.

I think this bracket was a great idea. Its only flaw is not having precut tow hook covers forcing you to make your own.

You can see the full tutorial with pictures here: http://www.ct200hforum.com/forum/lex...tallation.html
Picture album here: http://commonc3nts.imgur.com/ct200h

I bought an extra tow hook cover, drilled a hole in it, and used a rubber grommet to seal it to keep water out.

There was pretty excessive damage from the dealer license plate holder after removal so the bumper plugs did not cover it all. But they are still better than before.

BumperPlugs for Lexus
- Color: Obsidian
$27.95
(these are the plugs for the bumper holes, they are just interior trim hole plugs but painted. You have to drill out your existing license holes using a 1/4in or 9/32in drill bit)

COVER, FRONT BUMPER HOLE, LH - LEFT / DRIVER SIDE
$8.34
(this is a new tow hook cover, it is unpainted and comes as matte black plastic)
The reason for this is to drill a hole in it for the "No Holes" bolt to go through.
Also, since my car is Obsidian black I probably wont paint the cover since it is not really seen behind the license plate and matches good enough. I could also just cut a hole in the original tow hook cover and use that.

5/8 Rubber Grommet from Fry's (probably could have used a 3/4in but they did not have them so I stretched it to fit)
$2.69 for a multipack of various sizes that can be used for other projects
