porsche 914 bumper guards

I am purchasing a '74 914 and am wondering if the 4 bumper guards tacked onto the front and rear bumpers can (easily) be removed and, if so, is there some sort of plug/ cap that can be inserted in the hole in the bumper.
thanks

Front and rear bumpers need to be removed to access the mounting bolts for the bumper guards.
A pretty easy job.... once the bumper guards are removed some general automotive plugs work just fine. I removed the rears only and my bumpers are black

I used these plugs as i had them for a BMW and they worked perfectly You'll need 4 for the front and 4 for the back.

If you have chrome bumpers, you can cut down some carriage-head bolts and use those to plug the holes. You may be able to find chrome plumbing plugs that fit the holes as well.
