Filing Bumper holes

I removed my front license plate bracket and have had painted bumper plugs in it but I'm growing old of the warts. I need some guidance on how to go about patching this for good. Also I'm looking to remove my decklid and patch the 4 bolt holes in my trunk. Any advice on that. Also does anyone know what material the front bumper is and what the trunk is made of.

Deck lid, tack weld a piece of metal behind the holes and fill in with body filler


Front bumper idk really bondo is maybe to stiff for a plastic bumper?

I was wondering if that was the route to go with on the decklid. Least its straight forward.

I've seen that too. It's a mesh you use to hold the 2 stage epoxy in place until hardened. Still wondering if anyone has experience doing this.

1slosix is just getting started.
15 cent nylon plugs from a hardware store...sand them flat (because usually they have a rounded head)...pre paint them to match...pop them in...it's how i plug things like the rear decklid when i feel like going badgeless..what's nice is i can pop them out when needed

I already have those in. I want the actual flush and seamless look because there is always a lil wart with plugs.
