Looks almost like a hole was drilled for a sensor of some sort?

Find something that'll plug it and JB Weld it in.

What're you gonna do, zip tie it to the tow hooks? The holes left by removing the tow hooks will be more useful in mounting the IC.

I fixed it with some quicksteel I had in my tool box, the same stuff I used to fix my radiator on my old 86 toyota corolla.
