Plating frame option "not rusted"

Ok so I have RE long arm kit on my TJ which I have now sold and will be pulling off. This will leave 3 1" holes in both sides of my frame. How should I go about strengthening this? Get some 1" stock and cut to fit and weld it in or just plate the frame? I would rather have it not look any different than original. Frame is in perfect shape with no rust.

Thanks

Use a hole saw to cut a few 1" slugs out of some 1/8" or 3/16" material, bevel the edges, hold in place with a magnet, tack, weld and grind.
