So I got bored and made some cowl plugs out of some stuff I had laying around the garage. 1) Blue matting that I walk on in my garage, 2) scrap aluminum, 3) cheap ratchet strap I had in the garage, 4) rattle can paint, and 5) $5 worth of stickers I had to buy. Not too pleased with the lower case "thorp" but it will do for a while.....

Looks nice. Did you happen to make any for the exits?

Hey Rich, no sweat, I just couldn't think of anything witty enough to post back! I did make plugs for the exits. Same set up as the front, but no white aluminum on those exit plugs. I just stuck a ratchet strap through the blue padding and tied the 2 exit plugs together.
