Default Anybody got a DIY on shaving rear wiper

Hey I wass just wondering if anyone knows a good way to plug the hole that rear windshield wiper leaves after you take it off. I saw a thing on how to do this at owners website but I'm not real sure if it's a good way or not.

If anyone knows a good way to do this please let me know.
Thanks

Looking for something like a rubber filler to make it look smooth, like it never really existed.

We copied the instructions on Cappy's site. Take a 1 1/4 inch hole saw from a hardware store. Make sure it does not have a drill bit in the center (remove it if possible). Using a pair of 99 cent sun glasses, drill out a lense using the saw. Remove the wiper unit and then epoxy the lense into the hole. We did it over a 1 1/2 years ago and havent had a problem with it. Still need to come up with something to do with the switch.

Thanks for the idea, what did you use for the lense?
