Had to do it in the past and your soul is crying :rocketwhore:
Even the law apply in CA -lot of owners of exotic cars drive without front plates. You can buy color coded plugs that you put into screw holes after you get fix-it ticket and have to put a plate for the inspection only.
MB plate brackets are just plastic shims that screw to plastic bumper cover. I just screw the plate directly to the bumper, while buying curved frame I think on ebay.
