    So im working on deleting my antenna, rear wiper and hatch windshield washer nozzle. I found a Honda plug that will work for the antenna and wiper blade, but I was wondering if anyone has found a plug for the sprayer? Any ideas?
    Thanks guys and gals!

    Personally, I would just leave it all in place until you"re ready for a paint job. Then, delete it correctly.

    I like the idea, but my car was just recently painted, maybe a year ago.. I wish i would have thought of these deletes before. Im ok with the black plug look, it doesnt stand out that much IMO.

    as long as the "plug" you have fits in place nicely you can do that and it works just fine.

    ninja makes a valid point, the better option would be to weld and do a proper body fill.

    but it is your car. and if your paint is rather fresh then just go with the plug. iv done it and it keeps
    out the water just fine just as long as its the right size :D

    *face palm* also noticed you were asking mainly of the sprayer... sorry i havent found one

    but then again i never looked. alot of parts stores carry plugs and grommets and such. maybe swing in
    to your local parts store and see what they have

    Ace Hardware keeps small plugs in their bins, measure the hole and see what you can find.
