Looks like a pop rivet to me

Yep. Aluminum pop rivets. I used a 3/16 inch drill to remove the heads. Be careful and drill just enough to remove the head. Too aggressive and you'll hit the bumper. Then I took a small 1/8 inch flat tipped punch and carefully punched out the rivets.

Now I'm looking for something to dress up the holes like a small chrome cap.

(or maybe a license plate holder LOL!)

Not sure what would work.

I might have to send them an email.

My bumpers are chrome and I didn't see chrome as a listed color. Not sure if matching them to the Cajun Red Tintcoat would look good.

 

And who would have thought there was a website called "bumperplugs[.]com! lol!

Silly me.

I googled "chrome bumper plugs" and found some on eBay. $5.56  each for 4 or more.

Ain't the internet wonderful!

I used a 1/4 inch bit and everything came out cleanly.  Plastic christmas tree style plugs can fill the holes if it bothers you.

I found some really nice chrome plugs on eBay.

A bit more expensive than others (Home Depot), but the quality of the chrome was much better looking.
