License plate light for custom bumper?

My bumper is pretty much complete but I need a light for the license plate. Any ideas for a license plate light?

My choices so far are these:

Lighted license plate bolts:

Lighted Frame:

I like the bolts but I'm afraid they aren't gonna light the plate up enough. The frame is nice but for my needs I'm going to need to hack it up and paint it black.

Like I said, has anyone used something else or have any new ideas?

I have the stainless bolts that light up. They work fine. The wiring has to be disconnected to remove the plate.

I'm going to try the lighted bolts. Kind of expensive for little bolts, but the final product is very clean which is a huge plus.
