Whats the best way to patch it so it's functional again? A little bondo in the hole? Some sort of goopy epoxy that hardens a bit? Help me obi wan kenobis...

Wondering if a standard drywall molly would do the trick.

I've got some of this lok tite epoxy...might try this first.



Almost wish there was a thin, pre-drilled metal plate/frame that you could affix to the vinyl fascia, and then screw the lic plate into that so that it wouldn't strip so easily in the future...did a quick search but didn't find anything off the shelf.

Then again, 3-5 layers of duct tape over the hole, then drilling thru might do the friggin trick...

Just filled that sucker with epoxy. Need I remind any of you how fun it is to fill a hole with viscous, goopy liquid?

Wait that didn't come out right.

Should have used moldable epoxy
