I am looking to remove the spotlight from my 2003 Crown Victoria P71. I am wondering if there is any type of plug that is made to fill the hole that will be left once the spotlight is out? Any suggestions?

Welding or bondo are your friends.

Nothing really designed to plug that area. Your going to be left with a curved chunk out of the door frame. the hole can be RTV'd and you'll need to find a new interior trim piece. Bondo will wind up cracking off from use of the door so having a piece wielded is your best option. Might be able to find another door/ interior trim piece from a civilian vic and swap (if your junkyards are good)

Actually, there is a factory plate that screws on the outside of the A pillars and blocks the spotlight shaft hole. My car has openings for spotlights but never had them, it came with those little blocking plates. I'd contact Unity and inquire.
