Tailgate Bolt Hole Plugs - Best Option

Ok this is pretty petty stuff but to some anal retentive people (like me) this stuff is important. I have found some plugs at Lows / Home Depot etc that fit pretty good but they either were a bit loose or didn't sit totally flat on the gate. So I just happened across this one at Pep boys. Perfect fit .

A little dab of silicone will help matters a little bit as well

Nice tip dude. I like the simplicity and the clean look. I also like the low-$$$.

Thanks for sharing the idea.

that link doesnt work anymore. I'm thinking of using that fastener type then putting tramp stamp over top of it.
