Suction cups work pretty well as a temporary solution (sometimes just need to stick them back up there, but it won't leave a tape residue on your windshield.

Thanks for the reply....What is this "relocator" you speak of? Is it a more permanent type of mount for the windshield?

He's probably talking about the plate relocator that goes where your front tow hook would be on your bumper.

You dont need a front plate in Houston anymore as of SEP, 2013 this bill goes in effect. But as of now cops are not stopping people for front license plates anymore.

Or if you dont want to drill holes in your windshield you can weld brackets to it and then attach the plate to the brackets.

You should drill holes in the front of your bumper and mount it there, I hear that's pretty popular now a days.

Agreed. This is illegal in CA. Not so in TX?

Illegal in NE, just throwing that out there. Check your laws before you get a citation. It's a PITA.
