Floor pan replacement questions

Hey all, The past few days I have cut out basically the entire floor in order to replace it. I plan to start welding them in tomorrow but was looking for some recommendations. The two options I've been thinking of are welding all the seams all the way around, or just spot weld some short like 2" spots spread out and just use sealant or something to fill between those welds. If the second option is there a good sealant or filler that would be good for this? Any other ideas as to how to do it are also welcome. Here are a couple pics of the work so far. Thanks

Weld all the way around. Any other way is just being lazy.

The true lazy man will say.. Do it the right way the first time. So you do not have to do it again later.

I agree with welding it completely, be sure to move around, only welding about 1/2" in one spot at a time to prevent warping.

those panels look really good, where did you get them?

Alright ill go ahead and weld all the way around then. I got the pans from quadratec. They are made by key parts inc. and are awesome. It is four seperate panels but not bad at only $65 a piece. They are Extremely sturdy, have pre drilled holes which line up pretty well, and cover from the factory seam at the firewall all the way to the seam at the vertical portion right before the back seat. It was a real pain getting through all the factory sealant and spot welds front and back but I'm happy I did because they fit great.
