Does anybody know where I can get a plug that goes in place of where the spot light was. Im talking about on the door not the inside post. I know Ive seen them on cars before. I did a search but couldnt seem to find anything on them. Maybe it was something that someone made up I dont know. Which I could also make something up also but if there is one specificly made for this Id rather just get it. Thanks
It takes one to catch one, but that depends on which one will tear up first. The one running or the one chasing. You never know.

The issue with filling in the NOTCH, not the hole in the door is that when the door latches shut, there'll be pressure pressing on it from the rubber weather seal, so generally, a plastic filler piece for the spotlight notch, like for filling the antenna holes in the roof/trunk, would be a poor solution, since it's likely to get pushed right back out.

A far better solution there is what I've always recommended for the roof and trunk holes, weld in new metal and do proper body work.
