floor pan screws

I started to try and take apart the floors in my truck and got shot down on the first screw. What are the nubs those screws go into, are they plastic? I can square off the heads so I can get a wrench on them but I am afraid I will just bust them. Is it feasible to grind them off, beat them through and just use new bolts with a nut on the bottom? The thought of more nut-bolt combos makes me cringe but if I have to I will. I want to do this so I can replace all the fasteners with SS so I can bury it all with Dynamat and not have to worry about it down the road

Thanks for any suggestions!

An angle grinder will make short work of rusted fasteners. Replace with new and use plenty of anti-sieze lube.

What are the little blocks the screws go into, are they plastic? I really don't want to replace anything I don't have to

Those are Mudflap Lokut Nuts. Odd name. Nylon inserts. I used the Dremel tool to cut channel for a larger standard screw driver, then it was no problem to remove.

Cool, thanks. There are quite a few missing with a bunch of different fasteners holding the floors in. Are the lock nuts attached some how or is it just the undercoating spray holding them on the underside of the truck?

They are sandwiched to the floor board, at least on Lizzy.

You know of a source for them?

Never mind, found them at Rimmer Bros.

Rimmer Bros. I buy most everything I need from them, great customer service. Choose UPS, and for a few bucks more get it in 2-3 days if in a rush.
