Questions on tow hook install!?!?!?

I just bought some PassWord JDM tow hooks.... Rear hook I installed to pre-existing tow hook, (Most re-inforced area) kinda lost on where to install the front hook.
Looking for ideas on where to install... and how!?!?

Thanks for the responses.

This member's looking for sound advice not looking for us to give him crap about the accessories he wants to put on his car (ie. that's dumb, that's the lamest thing you could do to your car, etc, etc). Or he would've asked us what we thought about putting the tow hook on his car. What you may consider "rice" and ugly, he may not; regardless if the tow hook is going to get legit use or is purely for show. To each his own. Way to go for making another member feel welcome here on DA.

Well then bolt it to the plastic bumper cover if they are just for looks.

For real.....IDK there is got to be a frame behind the bumper that you can bolt to.

^^ Thanks bro. Like you said... I didn't ask for opinions if it would be "riced out" or "ugly" anything lik that. ALL I asked was for some advice on where to install the front hook.... And I don't want to cut into my bumper. Some of you guys are d*cks on this website. You don't see me talkin sh*t about ur "riced out" accord..... Just asked for some damn advice!

Well to be honest Devin, this is my buddies car. I know on the Civics they needed to drill a hole in the metal bumper. Not sure if this is the case here, but I think you will need to drill a hole. Im not much help on this but thought I show you where I saw ny buddy put it.....
