Holes from seat bolts..

How did y'all patch the holes left from the seat posts ? I was thinking silicone, but I don't know if it will hold up

I cleaned the holes and got rid of the rust then used fiberglass. cured quickly and worked like a charm.

Good call. The fiber reinforced Bondo is light years ahead of the old original.

We used to call that "kitty hair" or "tiger hair"
Rebuilt most of a floor in a rotted out 73 bronco with that stuff and some liberated no parking signs...

I used 3M Dynatron 550 seam sealer to fill mine. The Bondo products aren't waterproof so you will have to get underneath and coat them to keep them from absorbing water.

I sanded away any rust, sprayed Rustoleum Rust Reformer, and then filled the holes with Henry 212 Crystal Clear. I love that stuff. A month later, it's rock hard solid and it ain't goin' anywhere. It was a great choice.

I think I like this idea. Would it soak into a fiberglass mat, you think?

I definitely think so. And a month later, since I haven't gotten to putting my floors down yet, I've tripped over the nubs several times lol. I decided to test one and try to yank it out...no go. The plugs are firm and not coming out. Super waterproof, so I'll be using it in several areas. I originally bought it to seal a window that was leaking.
