Bumperette plug

The access holes... from which the Torx screws are removed... that hole... is there a "plug" that snaps into that hole.

I've looked, not exhaustively, and found zero.

Would someone know of the part number... or from where I could source used ones? ItsNotaNova is scaling back, so I don't want to bother him.

Thank you.

This is the correct answer. There is no cap on the bottom of the bumperettes.

So lets say I was sitting on 50 pairs of those plugs. With how much quid $$ would anyone be willing to part with for a pair. I'm curious.

Zero. The only person that would really see the holes is if I were to run someone down and I dont plan to do that anytime soon, soooo not really needed.

Well, I have none.

Inspecting something in that general area I noticed that the blanks covers must have fallen out. Come to find out they don't exist. It isn't a part, the bumperette, often removed, so I'd think there'd be a blank cover. Along the lines of B P products... filling in the blanks... like their front bumper cover license plugs... but on a slightly larger scale.

Anyhow. Learn something new each day. Thank you.
