    Does anyone have any suggestions of how to make the front bumper license plate screw holes less noticeable? Ohio recently did away with the front plate requirement and I just removed mine.

    I like the way you think, but not in the budget!

    I do have some touch up paint so I might try to add one of these and then just paint them!

    Ah, I just realized you had the color matched insert... I think my wife's old Explorer was white, so I primed and painted those and it worked well.

    Found these in my garage today from my past truck.
    It will work for now. Either way I can remove them with no issues later if I dont like them!

    Working on it!
    Harbor Freight has a small soldering iron (call it a plastic welder) which you could use some of the plastic rods to fill the holes. Tape outside surface and fill from inside...will create a pretty smooth finish which could be lightly sanded with some very high grit sandpaper.
