Question Front License Plate Bracket

I recently moved to a state that requires a front license plate, but my 2004 4-door DX Civic has no holes in the front bumper and I have no way to mount the license plate.

Can anyone direct me to a place online to order the bracket and hardware? My local dealership wants around $50.00 for it, which seems ridiculous. I've done research online, but I can't quite tell if what I'm looking at is the exact part(s) that I need.

I would like one that looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/J7MA0iQ.jpg - one that looks like a stock part with the black plastic around the sides.

Also, will I be able to mount the plate once I receive the parts? Or will I need to do some drilling in my bumper? Thanks for any assistance.

That's funny, I can't find one without a license plate in Google images.

So there is 2 options. The factory location, or the JDM relocation kit. There's kits on eBay. like so
JDM LICENSE PLATE RELOCATOR KIT UNIVERSAL FOR FRONT LEFT / RIGHT SIDE PURPLE | eBay

not for a civic, but it will give you an idea.

Here's the kit they talk about in that DIY

Here's one on Amazon

heck, you could buy some sheet metal and make one for super cheap. I personally like the look of it being off to the side, looks a lot cleaner, and you won't have visible drill holes if you ever remove it.
