Taking roof rack off

I want to take the stock roof rack thingies off. I think my wagon would look cooler without. And I don't use it. Ever. I have no need. So, suggestions on how to fill the holes, paint, ect...

I'm thinking of debadging too and darkening my tail lights.

Thanks

klone. i just thought about what my bfs acura looked like after we debadged...you could still see where the badges had been because of how long they were there.

lol. so mine is a 2005, i bet it would look pretty crumby if i debadged and didn't get a paint job.

i debadged mine on a 2002 and yea you could still see the outline for a while,even more after the car was washed and still wet. but after a month or less and you couldn't even notice that there were badges there in the 1st place. i love the look. also my my tails are blacked out,but imo it will only look good on a dark color paint job.

Hmmm. if you do decide to debage u can try waxing or polishing the area for a bit. the outline would disappear........ with time lol! or look on youtube for tips and stuff
