Same here basically. I have an assortment of plastic ones that I bought from a local hardware store. They are low profile and just push in.

I left the tire bumps in the upper corners. The hole where the brake light wire came thru I bought a rubber valve cover grommet and stuck it in that hole. $3 at Oriellys. When I decide what to do with the other two rubber bumpers Ill pull them. They are a smaller hole as you know and Im trying to find another solid rubber grommet small enough for there.

I made the plate out of aluminum. Grabbed some rubber plugs from the parts store for the holes.
