about stuffin holes

Working on cleaning up the engine bay and just finished rerouting the wires that go over the wheel well on the passenger side. Any ideas on how to fill the holes that were left behind from the wire hold downs, positive terminal and the ground cable? Keep in mind I have no access to a welder.

Maybe rubber plugs, like used to fill drain holes? I know I've seen them in the odds and ends section at the auto parts store. Finding the right size might be tricky.

Eh.. I was going for something that would look finished so I can sand it down and paint it.

Fill em with bondo, smooth em, paint. Not the best way, but it would work. That or maybe tape on the bottom and fill em with epoxy of sorts. Same effect.

Yea I think im going to give something like that a try. My only concern is that there really isnt anything holding the "bondo plug" in place and it just falling out.

You could always lead in a small piece of sheet metal, all that takes is a small torch.
