The screws that I have are a flange head, sheet metal style screw.

Mine is in storage, I can measure if I go out there today, but I would guess they're either a #8 or #10 screw.

One can always secure a piece of aluminum to the backside of the bumper cover with two-way tape to provide additional support for using smaller (even trim) screws.

That sounds spot on. I have a bracket with the 3 screws and they are Phillips Head screws and are very similar to the license plate screws except these are about 2" long - IIRC.

Okay, I got into the storage unit today, and got my license plate bracket in hand, and was going to take a picture, but my damn cell phone camera app kept crashing.

That being said/written, the screws are #10 X 1.00" long SEMS machine screws with a captive flat washer, not a sheet metal screw as I wrote earlier.
