Seat bolt holes!

I thought about trying to weld all the holes in the Floor but I have flux core wire and it seems like it would be too much work with this approach. I read through some threads and saw some people swear by dynatron 550 seam sealer so I purchased some. I can just shoot some from a caulking gun into the larger house and smooth it out? I used some flap disc's to remove old converter/rustoleum oil based paint from when I first got rid of surface rust. Should I spray some rustoleum spray the repaint then add the 550 right into the hole and simply smooth it out? Them paint over that after? If I have to paint over the holes after applying 550 I was thinking of adding aluminum foil tape first. Is this a good approach?

Also, someone suggested I use something called Dowsil 790 instead of the dynatron 550. Anyone ever heard of this or can vouch?

Thanks

Second for pennies over holes. Pick a good construction adhesive and just lay the pennies down. I got under the bus after all was dried and sprayed it with (your choice) to weather proof the bottom of the hole and penny.

I used the plastic plugs you see in vehicle trim. don't know what you call them. the ribs they have kept them in the holes. applied some dynatron and put the plug in the hole. Applied these after I painted the floor

PRE-1982 pennies are strongly recommended.
The newer ones are zinc wafers with a crunchy copper coating, and possess a much higher dielectric potential than the purely Cu coins.
Commonsense to use less common cents...
Of course, the BEST thing is that they cost only pennies!!!
