I've had good luck using trim attachment clips. They are plastic and hold very well and won't damage the threads if you ever need to use them again. They come in lots of sizes, but only two colors-black or white. Some Duplicolor plastic paint can fix that.

Why not just some nice looking hex heads painted to match. Simple and usable

Yea use bolts to close. You never know when you will need to use them, like for a flag mount or cb antenna, stuff like that.

Fab a plate to mount something else or like above, use bolts and paint to match. Put a little anti seize on the threads for ez removal later
Why did I wait so long to buy my first jeep??

I used bolts, too, with sealant on the threads to water proof.
