UFO's and hard top holes

Has anyone used the Vector Offroad UFO's (Vector Offroad) to plug the holes around the rim of the tub for the hardtop hardware? I don't have a hardtop and I don't plan on getting one, but I can't stand the unsightly holes all over the perimeter of the tub and want to plug them up with something. Just curious if anyone knows if they would fit.

I used plugs from Lowe's instead of the UFO's on my hood. I'm sure those would work.

Not a bad idea. I plan to rinoline the top of the tup rail once it warms up. I find the tub rails tend to get scratched easily when loading/unloading gear.

Did you get those in the pull out bins with the other unique, metric, and other bolts? Do you recall the size? I like that idea, and sure the price is right too.

Yeah, it was in that section of parts... I can't remember the size, and unfortunately, I can't find the thread that had it. I'll look some more...

1/2 inch

Thanks! Found them at Lowe's, you are correct they are 1/2" Nylon Hole Plugs.
