Thanks Adrian!

I have a theory that the heads of the bolts will not be noticeable once the 3/4" thick insulating foam and carpet goes in. I'm done with the days of sliding stuff on bare painted aluminum on my truck. It scratches the heck out of it!

That being said stellar job man. Looks great
I'm going to have a few protrusions on my floor as well. Disco seat latches etc. I'm planning to get a sheet of something waterproof that I can route and knock out all the areas with protrusions so I'll still have a smoothish floor. Might route grooves for aluminum channels for tie downs etc as well.

That could work but a sheet of nylon would be pricey I imagine....

I was thinking perhaps of using this MDF product called Extira that's used for exterior signs etc. I had letters routed for the signage outside of one of my businesses and two years later through rain, snow and ice it's looking amazing (painted of course) It's very dense and designed to be milled without a problem.

Uhmw all the way. As far as plastic goes, nothing is more abrasion resistant for the money. And it is dirt cheap. I am amazed that any fiberboard would have good water resistance

Looks incredible - real nice work and I have tub envy!

What about a thin layer of plexi - then drill out for the bolts so it sits just right. I would have a smile on my face every time I opened up the rear door seeing that perfect floor and Allen heads (my favorite bolts btw).
