plate removed - what to do w/ holes

hey y'all - so i FINALLY removed the front license plate from my bumper the other weekend. unfortunately, it left the holes i expected it to leave (tho i'd rather have them for now than that stupid plate)

however, with winter coming up (which equals salt and junk) i dont want the holes exposed and leave the possibility for rust. not to mention i'd just like to plain 'ol cover the holes.

i remember there being some way to mask up the holes with some kind of plugs or putty or such. any of you know what can be used? what has worked for you? and where i find the supplies?

much appreciated!

with plate:



without plate! wooo one step closer:



p.s. - i washed my car for probably the last time before next summer this past weekend. it's gotten quite chilly already.

for just a quick fix you could just get some little bolts and paint the heads white till you can get them molded in. looks good though! i like it without the front plate.
