    You can buy little brackets (from bushwear) that slot inside the skull cavity and hold it to the plaque.

    ​Another method is to fill the cavity with car body filler and then screw thru the plaque into it.

    <<<<<How do you fix a full uncut skull to a shield using spring toggles, like the photo of my avatar to the left <<<<<

    I have tried but the skull wants to lift so the nose end, ends up being at least 45 degrees to the shield.

    The only other suggestion is use filler to fill brain cavity and then use a normal woodscrew. Sounds like a lot of filler would be required!!!

    could you not just drill the hole big enough for the toggle, I would think around the eye sockets or would it still raise the nose that low??
