Hi Jake,

are you looking for argument "panel.first" of "plot.default"? ?plot.default

panel.first: an expression to be evaluated after the plot axes are set

          up but before any plotting takes place.  This can be useful
          for drawing background grids or scatterplot smooths.

hth,
Matthias
