Blank grommets

After re-engine the rib I'm left with four holes where the old gauges were. Does anyone have a source of blanking grommets as I think that would be the best solution unless there's a better option.

A mate of mine has changed gauges and has holes in his console so bought a bit of flat pre made GRP with orange gel coat and made a new full plate over the lot. I haven't seen it yet but he's happy with it.

I think this, or some nice laser / waterjet cut brushed ally or carbon fibre would be the better way to go!

You could fit plastic vents don't know how many you got but fit say two vents and two polished ss discs or fit speakers? Or one big plate with boat name etched on it I have a plastic plate at the Back of my chart plotter which look s--t so I got a piece of black composite plate to change it out you can see the Woven cloth which looks sports car ish

Regards jeff
