Now it is time to do some restoration work to the floor.
A few areas had a some surface rust. A little sanding and some fresh paint took care of that.
Now I had to fill the dozen or so holes in the floor, that were left after the removal of the bench, chairs and safety belts.
I choose for carriage bolts with washers. With some additional caulk, they would solidly close these openings and later on, their flat heads will be covered by some rigid insulation board.
Again, working alone on the van, added a couple of extra hours to the work. Sometimes the fastening of the bolts left me with one hand short.
