the concept looks fairly simple and all the pieces should be available at your local hardware store.

there are a few companies that sell these things (craigs license plate brackets,, etc).

No front plate needed here, but if it was I would fabricate something like that. Most h/w stores have 1/8" x 3/4" or 1" flat stock, and the slots would not be needed for custom brackets--in fact they could likely be once piece for our cars.

Something to keep in mind; aluminum flat stock does not tolerate sharp 90° bends without fracturing, make it a radiused band (1/4" or better) or two closely spaced 45° bends...

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.

They have something like that on AM. Yes you have to drill but you can tuck it under your car when you're at a car show, or in a different state. I have one on my car. That's why I was able to mount it at the bottom of my front bumper. See pics below. I had it mounted on my bumper (had to drill holes into it). Now bottom pic I mounted it on the bottom of my bumper and can actually slide it up under my bumper if need be.
