Has anyone purchased the front grill Honda Insight accessory/upgrade? Do you have a before and after photo?

I took off the front license plate bracket and it left holes. This would be an easy solution to fix the unsightly screw holes.

FYI (if interested) the Japanese Insight has a chrome front grille, and a few folks have looked into getting the parts. Haven't had update on their progress, but these are the threads where the chrome grille has been discussed:

I was thinking the same thing, or filling. Found a quick, cost-saving solution was using black plastic caps to fill the holes. Friendly neighborhood auto body guy had a drawer full and shared a few with me. Been over a year and the most the look like up close are parking sensors.

Those look good! Do you have more information on what those are exactly?

They may have been push in retainer clips. I just did a quick search for those and plastic/nylon friction rivets which yielded a bunch of different products of different sizes that look very similar to what they used. The ones they used had a nice flat, disk head which match the black billet screw covers on my back plate whic are a little higher profile, but look finished. You could use those as well. I get them on amazon or auto part stores.
