basicly to make a recess you cut a whole in the bumper, and put in place either a flat piece of plastic or a bought recess (about 45 from quad conversions. Then bond this on and use bumper filler to fill, and then sand and spray over the top, not that hard with the recess from quad converions as it has the light built in.

dunno if a fiberglass bumper will hold it, think it would

if you do that then 1 you will need to light it (on the spot fine if not) and
2 it will bend the plate and it will eventually break as the bumpers curved.

try this http://www.quadconversions.com/vauxhall_nova_no.plate_info.htm

its fr the nova but ive used it on loads of bumpers, ithere that or if heard of people using the one from the new corsa bumper, or the fiesta, in my opinion it would be harder, but i suppose cheeper.

hope this helps
