Thanks for your help guys, Anybody know where to get 3m tape? does it have to be automotive 3m tape or can it just me 3m tape?

The bumper is curved and the plate is straight, so the plate won't sit flush against the bumper unless you bend it, which might look weird. If you look in my garage, my plate is in a plastic carrier and is not pressed up against the bumper from end to end. Only the middle portion is actually contacting the bumper and that's where I placed a rectangle of tape. It's worked out well so far.
Where did you purchase the plastic carrier, Ive seen many on ebay and a few websites but they only sell if you buy a plate!
