Can I line my Vauxhall Vivaro to cover 'inspection' holes in the body of the van?

There are a number of "inspection" holes in the body of my Vauxhall Vivaro. They are in the corners at the back of the van, they vary in size and you can see the wiring through them. I presume the wiring is for external light clusters. I am about to line the van and would like to make them tidy, or cover them. Can you help?

You should be fine lining the van. However, ensure the panels can be removed as someone in the future will need to access the wiring, should anything go wrong with it.
