Was missing Bass cab port hole covers, I used Chrome garbage disposal flanges purchased at Lowes for $15. each. They look really cool and authentic and fit the port! Just wanted to share this discovery.
(I would prefer to find the vintage ones if remotely possible? But happy with these.)

Hey, listed on Ebay are some black plastic ports that are 3 inches in diameter and 4 1/2 at the flange. I am going to try chrome spray paint and see how it comes out. Figured the diameter issue.....would just wrap electrical tape around the tube until it fit on the mounting bracket. My brother suggested having the ports chromed. Checking into that as well. Problem with drain pipes is that they aren't rounded at the flange....are they?

Sorry.....missed that you used garbage disposal flange.........was thinking of drain strainer.......Great idea and probably a lot cheaper than having plastic chromed. I'm heading for Menards to see what they have now.
