Default Need ideas for license plate relocation

I've got a 2003 FXDWG which has the duck bill fender. I have the kit to relocate the plate to the swing arm using Kuraykan's mount. As I start to take stuff off I notice how awful it looks without the license plate bracket in between the wheel and fender. Any ideas on something to fill the hole or another way to remount the plate?

I don't like the plastic mount and I hate hearing it rattle as I ride around town. Open to any ideas or even better...pictures. thanks in advance

I would run some LED lights through there...custom dynamics or Dakota Digital might have something that works

So turn it into a brake light or something instead of moving the brake light to the side mount license plate bracket? That's a cool idea.

when I had my 05 bobtail night train I used the side mount kit to the swingarm, I kept the brake light where it was and used a dremel tool to cut off the license plate mount.

I think you might have a similar setup. I don't have pictures anymore

That's what I was thinking too, unless I can find something else to fill that hole. Thanks for help.
