Plastic Rivets for Trunk Holes

Hey Yc fam I need some help. I want to remove my spoiler and need to know where I can purchase some plastic pop rivets to cover the trunk holes. Has anyone tried this? Is their a particular size needed to prevent leaks in the trunk?

Can get them at any autoparts stores, just measure the holes and get the appropriate plugs. Probably should also put some silicone around the holes to weather seal the holes also.

That sounds better so I don't have deal with getting measurements.

Yea I wish I could trade trunks but you can't with the G5. The spoiler comes standard . Do I have to paint the caps or do they come pre colored?

Probably will have to paint the caps, have only seen them in back and white. May be able to find some colored ones on Ebay, do not know for sure though.
