Repairing the floor

Hi Guys

So I was ripping out my rubber matting floor (no plywood?)
And I found a hole between the back wheels..

I am open for none welding options (as I do not weld at the moment)
Also the floor was wet in places even though there was no rust?

Thank you!!
Howard

Cut the rust back, neutralize the rust, rivet or screw a patch panel over the hole. Making sure to seal and paint before and after installing patch panel.

Hi

Thank you!

It might be an access panel - to what I don't know - it looks like a spark plug on top of the fuel tank - but that does not make sense...

There was a panel screwed to this hole.
Re the rust hole at the back.
What material should or could I use?
Wish I had kept some of the steel plate back from the side walls...

Thank you
Howard

thats the access poanel to your fuel sending unit for your fuel gague.. asnd on some busses its also where your fuel pump is so you want to leave some type of access to it.. it was placed there by the factory so you can fix your fuel gauge if it breaks (and your fuel opump if there is one there.. I dont know your bus and engine's design).
