    A fake Allen bolt epoxied on would blend right in too. I want to see something rigoddamdiculous to cover it eh? In the spirit of the beer cap style maybe.

    Tape job

    Haha, I too was thinking about this on my SL-R/XX1 build. I did see that Pivot and Yeti both have these cover plates but I didn't want to put one of those on the Ibis as that would be blasphemy. I'll probably just tape around it and plasti-dip the bare metal.
