I used some automotive plugs I found at Lowes painted to match, until I had a body shop fill them in the right way.

Sucky situation but when I needed to replace my front bumper, I told the body shop not to drill any holes.

How did the body shop fill them in? Did they use bondo?
Plastic filler material...I had to have mine replaced after I ran over Tony's truck during the "Popeye's Chicken Bitch" incident a few years back!

They still had to spot fill and block sand the dimples before they primed and painted it, but this is the way to go...

if the truck is black... leave em drilled.. they are hardly noticeable...

and here in illinois its required to have one.

a member here took his off, and cleaned up the holes so they are barely noticeable... this way if he gets stopped for it... he can say it came off in the carwash and ordered one and is waiting to get the new one at the dealer .

LMAO

I bought the hideaway license plate holder and will be here tomorrow.
What yall think maybe $100 to get it done is resonable?
Im very picky when it comes to things like that.
