    Any suggestions on how to hide front licence plate holes left in the bumper?

    In FL we don't have front plates, so I removed the license plate holder. Unfortunately it was just screwed right through the plastic bumper, leaving 4 ugly holes.
    Even so, I like it better without the plate.

    Anyone come up with a cheap, easy solution?

    Here is what I used when I took the license plate bracket off of my car.

    Haven't had any issues so far with them coming off at all.

    Same as above. Nylon hole plugs can be had from your local hardware store also, and for much less cost, then painted with touch up paint to match the bumper cover.

    Just a note - for those of us not in CA finding the front plate holder is a real challenge. Fiat dealers can't seem to order it. So don't junk it, someone on the forum might want it!
