    Pics of front plate holder hole plugs

    Looking for pics of lighter color vehicles (preferably silver ) with painted plugs to cover the holes made when removing the front license plate holder.

    Would like to see different angles and from a slight distance. Trying to determine if I'd be satisfied with the look.

    I drilled out the rivets on my Imperial Blue 2011 and have some nasty holes. I went to Lowes yesterday about bought some 1/4 black plastic plugs but I haven't put them in yet. I need to drill out the holes to the 1/4" size first. I can see that they will look better than the unfinished holes but the plugs have a raised edge so they won't fit totally flush. I was hoping to find some rubber mushroom head plugs but I couldn't.

    One of the few nice things about living in Michigan... No front plates and no holes in the front bumper.

    Ditto for North Carolina!

    DaleK,
    Would it be possible to drill those 0.25" holes into a piece of scrap, install the plugs into that and sand them down.....remove the sanded plugs and place into your bumper??

    Just a thought....

    I feel for you folks with bumper holes. I made sure my salesman understood if mine came in and had the front plate, they'd be ordering a new car, or replacingthe whole bumper.

    I chopped this pic from another thread posted here. These plugs, which have a somewhat flat head can be purchased from Lowes.

    ...painted-to-match, snap-in, "boo-boo" plugs work too.

    Here's a picture of my front fascia with a different type of plug from Lowes. These are not mushroom plugs. In my case the black plug on a dark blue car is pretty inconspicuous as far as color matching and I think I'll leave it like it is now.
