Filling the License Plate Holes on Front SLK Bumper
Has anyone successfully plugged the license plate holes on the front bumper without using "plugs?" I've searched the threads and internet and saw references to sites that sell color-matched plugs, etc., but I think they look awful and would rather use some filler material, sand it down and use touch-up paint. Has anyone done this? Or has anyone had a body shop do it (if so, how much did it cost?)?
I will be taking European Delivery on an SLK 350 and know for fact that holes will be drilled to accomodate the front license plates for driving around Europe, but would like to restore the holes once I pick it up in Florida (front plates are not needed here).
