Looking for ideas on replacement fasteners, something low profile.
I have no use for these OEM fixtures, I'll never unbolt my windshield for any reason other than to remove it completely, if ever.

I'm thinking some kind of flush-fit bolt in countersunk washers with rubber backing or some shit...

Any pics?
Any particular sources for this hardware that I can focus on?

I've looked at McMaster-Carr and MSC but, damn, countersunk washers are expensive if you don't want them to rust.
I may have to settle for flat washers (also fitted with rubber/plastic) but I'll be damned if I use some ugly-ass Phillips or hex head. I have plenty of low profile allen heads on hand but I don't think they're all that corrosion resistant - black finished alloy steel.

I just dropped some stainless bolts in the holes. Not super low profile but I have a hood louver installed so not a big deal to me if they stick up a little bit.

You're overthinking it. Black plastic hole plugs from the bins at Lowes. Couldn't be any lower profile, and it'll cost $4 for everything. No pics because it's night, but I'll try to get something tomorrow.

THIS ^^^
And I can contribute a few pics.

I never took any pics specifically of this "mod", but here's a few pics of my "shaved" hood with and w/o hood louver panel.
