    Blanking plugs for rear wiper/aerial/door mirror?

    I plan to remove the rear wiper, aerial and passenger side mirror. Is it possible to get blanking plugs for the aerial, wiper and mirror holes left behind? Don't need to look good, just need to prevent water getting in reliably!

    Thanks for help in advance!

    Go to a hardware store or plumbing/electrical wholesalers and ask for a blind grommet of the required size.

    Excellent. What about the mirror as it'll be a large hole?

    Thanks to you both for your help!

    PS, i think the best thing for that would be an old mirror panel from a scrappy and some fibrglass + paint!
