If your gonna do a temp fix then just plug the hole with a piece of rubber and cover it with some vinyl that matches your car. Then when you get it painted they will fill the hole with bondo or another body filler.

Ya i found plugs at lowes/home depot in the misc hardware drawers that i think might work. I'll just use a plug, rubber washer and seal it from underneath. I believe that should work

Here is my fix...

I got the smaller XM antenna from a junkyard and just color - matched it to the car.

Sorry for the bad pictures...there's no light where my car is sitting right now. I'll take a better picture tomorrow when I get off of work. But you should get the idea...
