You can always use bolts and nut to hold the license plate in. In Nevada we don't have a front plate law. You are talking about the bolts that just hold the plate in?? Upload a picture to check out.
Had another car that happened to once and a set of nice chrome or black bolts did the job well. Auto part store carry bolt cover piece for plates also. Just another option if your looking for the cleanest look. I'm very meticulous and it worked for me.
