Bumper plate with no holes for screws?

Wanna put a pony plate on my front bumper but there aren't any holes for screws? Can I drill some without messing up the bumper or sending cracks every which way in the paint?

If what you are trying to mount has posts, cut them off and use double-sided tape.

i'd be afraid to trust it to not fall off while I'm driving on the smallest bump in the road.

I have 3M tape holding on my louvers. You will have no issues with it if you apply it right, which is super easy. And it leaves no marks. Even if it did fall off, which it wont, wouldnt you rather replace that than drill into your bumper and risk destroying it?

DONT drill holes, they make them that attach without any holes being drilled, go that route. You just need the mount. Cant remember but I know a few sites sell them
