Covering holes below your doors?

Looking for advice on what others have done to cover/fill the holes below your doors after the bottom trim has been removed. What have you done?

I removed approximately 7/8 of an inch of sheet metal from the back fenders, welding and repainted to make it look like the rest of the Jeep. I currently do not have any sliders installed, however there are 9 holes below the door that I am not comfortable leaving exposed. Do sliders use/cover these holes? Looking for suggestions on what ppl have done to fill/cover these holes without putting the bottom trim back on.

Pictures if you got them please.

Edit: 04 W.J. Laredo model.

I am amazed there is no info on this... or an after market item to remedy this issue. I would think there is enough of a demand to make a profit. I'm obviously wrong based on the lack of info on the web and lack of responses.

Going to look into designing my own solution, then selling it and making millions! Muhahahuahauaa-ha...ha.

All I did after installing my sliders was to trim the plastic piece and put it back on.

Previous Jeeps: 84 CJ7 (A True Jeep), 2000 XJ (163,000 Miles/Totaled (Pictures of wrecked Jeep in gallery)), 2004 WJ (parting out die to major electrical issues)

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

I like the look of the paint job instead of the faded plastic. I guess I should have gotten a limited. Ha.

I went to a marine store and picked up some non skid tape in black and covered them right up.
