Hey, everyone!
This is my train of thought for the floor: after I spray more ospho and rustoleum on the inside and about 2" around, I was going to apply something similar to epoxy to coat the whole floor, plug the holes from the seats, level and give more thickness to the sheet metal as it is a bit thin in some spots from rust. Looks like a material like the epoxy for garage coating is too thin, and it would run through the holes. But then I thought "what if I stick some type of a mesh on the floor first, then apply the epoxy?"

The idea here is to keep the overall thickness of the floor to a minimum, as I want to add soundproofing layer and self-sticky tiles for finish.

So final floor inside would be: metal, rust treatment coating, epoxy or this > http://m.homedepot.com/p/BEHR-Premiu...801/204166284/ layered enough to plug holes from seats and other screws, then sound and vibration reducer > http://m.homedepot.com/p/4-ft-x-8-ft...6BX/100663624/ , then regular sticky tiles.

What do you all think? Be gentle....

I've found the mesh I'll be using to cover the holes and pour the coat! We're in business! Some testing before 100% deployment ;)

Bought so far for skoolie:
1. Marker lights
2.Replacement headlights
3. Water pump (yes!!!)

Next are new side mirrors (think I found some good ones), and a storage unit to replace the battery compartment as it is all rusted up.
This will be slightly longer to fit right between the underbelly supports. I can't wait to start cutting!

I'm going to use roof tin caps to patch the holes in my floor. A little dab of epoxy or some sort of adhesive sealer and one of these should patch the hole with out adding any significant thickness...
