Bit of an odd one but can't see anything online for this....

Can you get covers or caps that cover the holes in the front end where the tie bars bolt on?

I've just removed the front lip but the holes in the front makes it seem un-finished.

Any ideas?

You mean where the subframe mounts? 
 

nope but you can get tow eyes that replace the bolts.

You could probably find a rubber grommet that would fit the holes or get someone to turn you up a pair of domed alloy plugs to do it.

I've ordered some rubber grommets, will see how they fit but may end up getting 2 tow eyes and making a thing if it.

Easiest thing would be to make a circular cover curved to the front panel paint it then glue it over the whole with something like the non permanent version of silkaflex

I reckon there would be a few people intestered in them. Just surprised there isn't any out there already. One that screws onto the remaining thread and covers it nicely.

Would not work without having another big hole.

How about chromed plastic sink tap blanks. I used them to blank off the jacking point holes in my Commer camper, a bit of bling tidies the holes up nicely.

 

Or stainless

for example

How about flashing blue LEDs, to frighten "fast-lane hoggers"

I purchased these off the land of ebay, they fit and cover the hole well, I just need to sand down some thick paint / filler clumps then they will hold nicely.
