3D designer or some one good with CAD

Any one on this forum good with 3D design? I am trying to find some one that is familiar with the older Boxsters and knows 3D design work.

I repainted a Barbie Boxster for my wife's Pullip doll collection. The rear bumper of the car has these two ugly screw holes that would have been covered up by the red and black Barbie license plate decal. But I am not using that. So I got thinking and realized that the OEM Boxster black rear bumperettes would be perfect to cover these holes. I have a 3D printer, but I am very much a noob to 3D design. I find all my projects on thingiverse. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have read that there is software out there, that if I take enough regular 2D pictures of an item it will render those photos to 3D. I am not sure how well that would work on a black item though.

Have you tried tinkercad?
It’s extremely easy to learn and use. It’s online, so nothing to download or install.
Anyone can start and be building decent models within an hour.

I haven’t had much luck with the 2d-to-3d method, but a simpler shape like this may work better.
