Default Rear Number Plate holder brackets

I'm doing some winter tidy up work and have the rear bumper off. There are 3 metal brackets that clamp the rear number plate holder to the bumper. These have almost completely bio degraded. Can anyone help me identify the part numbers so I can source some replacements.
Its an MY03.
thanks
Andy

Jeez ! just found them on Lings - over £100 if I include the screws.

is there an alternative ?

I'm pretty sure the side ones are sturdy enough to clean up and paint with some Hammerite, but the bottom one is just crumbling in my hands

My car is now coming up to 13 years old and the brackets don't have any rust on them.

Thanks but I think that I might have to decline. Hoping that I can keep the car a little longer depending on how I manage this year. My Honda Dealer service manager keeps asking me to sell it to him.

The rear bumper is a gravel trap, the gravel shot blast the brackets and the crash bar making them prone to rust. I have fitted an Alloycraft diffuser to prevent the gravel from reaching there. I have also Waxoyled everything. I am waiting for the delivery of some rear wheel arch liners from Canada to protect the area some more.

My 2001 had this issue and I fabricated some brackets from pieces of metal lying around the garage. My rear crash bar had also disintegrated so I purchased a replacement and had it shot blasted and powder coated.
