How about some siding on the fence? :)

A friend's dad's new Legacy Sport Sedan (turbo awd!) - that's "new" in '93 when 
I visited Santa Fe - had some things that were teardrop-shaped, maybe an inch 
tall (along the door), stuck out 3/4" or so, and about the consistency of 
[child's toy] "super balls", the ones that bounce forever. Might be just the 
right size to fit in a hole in your fence, though. And of course I have no idea 
where he got them. Then there are the stainless/maybe-just-something-shiny door 
edge moldings, grab along the edge of the door. Maybe you could find some in 
black? Also don't know a good place for those, JCW probably has them.
