Youíre right. I meant bracket but wrote frame. Sorry for the confusion . What options are there to attach a front plate without drilling? I have zip ties now but it never stays straight.....

What is the correct frame for a 1970 Beetle? I have my front plate held on with zip ties right now. Can you tell me the correct way to address this?
