Metadata service without a public network interface


I followed the documentation here to create a gateway droplet and I disabled the public interface on my other droplets, behind the gateway. The problem is the metadata service on isn’t available anymore and I can’t use ip route add via {your-gateway-IP} dev eth0 since the interface is down. Is there a way to keep both the metadata service and no public interface?
