See the option of using freeze plugs on original plates. Looks ok and cost effective.

I did mine last winter and simply bought a couple of core plugs (5/8" size) off eBay for a few quid as recommended on here. Press them in with a dab of loctite, spray black and you'll never notice the difference.

You can buy fancy covers if you like a bit of bling, but you can never see them under the tank anyway so for me the cheap option is perfect ;)

Something like this:

Or a short piece of 15mm copper pipe and two small tie raps.
