does anyone on here have a magnetic license plate holder for their front plate? Im looking for something where i can stick my plate on for longer drives/interstates, but take off for around town and wont leave holes in my bumper. any products/ ideas/suggestions are good!

Maybe buy some strong "earth" magnets and JB weld some to the inside of your bumper and then some to your license plate.

I was looking for some magnets but don't know where to find them. I googled but couldn't find anything big enough. Any one have a site?

I think it turned out very well. I bought the rare earth magnets from Woodcraft.

Mine has withstood 140mph and some very rough potholes. I was also lifting the bumper by the frame holder.

Wasn't this discussed a couple days ago? Google.com "rare earth magnets"

or just buy a plate holder that dealers use, its got rubber straps that just get clamped between the trunk and the body to hold it there, im sure you can figure out a way to use that on the front.
