Front license-plate holder..?

Since I don't wanna get pulled over for some stupid "fix-it" ticket, yesterday I decided to to mount my front license plate... but to no prevail. There are two square holes which not only don't line up with my license plate holes, but there's no way to get a nut or anything behind the bumper... at least as far as I can see. Hence, any help or suggestion appreciated.

You need a mounting kit. I took mine off, you can buy it from me if you want since my new bumper doesnt have any holes at all.
