Removing side splitters, what to do about holes?

As the title states, I’m removing my side splitters this year to go for a different look. Stupid me was a little ignorant and drilled the splitters right into the rocker panel as I assume most people would’ve. Any suggestions on what I can do to cover/fill the holes? My biggest concern is salt/water getting stuck and rusting the area from the inside out.

Like the Driveway Labs side splitters, that are drilled up from under the car?
Seam sealer, or silicone, or get someone to weld them up, and spray.

Drilled into the body from the side: weld, bondo, paint.

I do have to have my pinch welds repaired - maybe this is something they can tackle while they’re under there. I like the idea of welding them shut. Seems a more suitable fix.
