I'm definitely not a fan of hanging a plate off the bodywork, so I think you have the right idea, Cameron. I mounted directly to my lower valance with floating nut-plates so the license plate is fixed and set back to not affect or block the heat extraction. I incorporated the license plate bolt LED wires into the rear light harness sleeve wrap so it looks clean and minimal. BTW, those single LED bolts are not very bright, and as is normal with LEDs, have a narrow beam so only part of your plate is lit in the dark. Once someone is behind you then of course the whole plate is reflected.
