Default sportster license plate relocate?

What do you guys do with the holes in the rear fender when you put on a sidemount license plate bracket? Looking for ideas.
Thanks!

Here's an idea http://www.jpcycles.com/productgroup...All&page=1

Or these can be used to fill the holes, either wire them up or not. http://www.jpcycles.com/productgroup...All&page=3

I am thinking to do the same and mount a fork bar on top of it.

Thanks guys!
Those look pretty cool! Just might work! It says for up to 2003. Is there a difference in the 2006 rear fender?
Thanks again!

I could be wrong (rarely happens ) but I believe the fender for the 06 should be the same as an 03.

By looking at it, I don't think it's going to cover that far left bottom hole, just the three that form the pyramid shape.

I took the easy way out and put a sticker over the holes.

Oh yea I forgot when I took my original plate off to put the laydown one on I found 4 holes also. I never did anything with it but leave it showing. It's hard to see behind the lay down bracket anyways. I wonder why there are 4 holes there and when did they start that?
