Default Stall Warning Switch Pilot Holes

Iím trying to decide what to do with these two holes. Leave them open, dimple them and put in AN426AD3-3 rivets to plug them, or something else...what did you do?

A little mico in the holes, then before it sets a single bid of fiberglass (small) on the inside as a backer for the micro. Let set and sand flush.

I installed the stall warning. But i wish i had just plug them. I might still. I found that stall warning vanes catch rags when cleaning the wings.

I also installed the stall warning vane. It was nice to have before I calibrated AOA and also I like the redundancy. Definitely a bit of overkill, but I'm comfortable with it.

I installed the stall warning switch and the AoA for the added redundancy. Have the stall warning vane in my 73 Cherokee 180 and never had an issue.

I dimpled those holes and filled with flush rivets.

Very similar to Carl, covered/plugged it but not with rivets.

The few times I've aced a landing, I wasn't able to hear anything over the sound of patting myself on the back.

I want to remove my stall warning switch. All the tab does is snag everything and everybody that gets near it.

The AoA does really well.
