Holes in floor.

What is a good product to fill holes in the metal floor left by the seat bolts and nails that held down the plywood. Any info will be appreciated.

Everyone has a different approach. Weld, silicone, bolts and epoxy lol. I welded mine, the few that I missed im going to hit with a big glob of silicone

What's your thoughts on liquid nails? We are going to frame the bus and then have it closed cell spray foamed.

I am in the process of welding mine. I can imagine it going pretty quickly if I knew what I was doing.

I just picked up my welder, so I am just learning.

I've personally been welding mine, but I think the next best thing is to use roof patch material since it's so tough

An update on mine. I am still welding the holes and treating the area with ospho after I am done.

I am leaving some big splatters down, but I am not going to worry about them as I am pretty sure the foam I install will conform to them.

I welded all of mine so I would not have to worry about them later. But...it is a good idea to go underneath and shoot some rust reforming paint on the welds. That fresh metal can rust like crazy if not treated. Did all of mine in a few minutes.
