Rear seat bolt holes

Im about to herculine the interior of my jeep and i want to close up the rear seat bolt holes since it didnt come with one and i dont see me getting one. I dont know much about welding and i want to do the herculiner application myself. What would be the best way to go about closing the holes?

I would tape the holes on the bottom or outside and then fill with bedliner. Welding would cause rust problems later down the road. And the next owner could install a rear seat by cleaning out the holes if needed. Dont add more work thats not needed.

Chris.... just get bolts for the holes and spray over them. Later down the road if you need the holes back just remove the bolts. They are 12mm x 1.75

This^^^....

And if you want the bolts to "disappear"?...

Buy some allen head type headless bolts the same thread and size as yours commonly used as plugs

They are bisicaly a bolt that is just all threads with no head on it,and an allen wrench type hole in it for the wrench...use some blue loctite on the threads and screw in untill flush..bedilner over them.

This way you have the options down the road to reuse the holes if you or another owner wants by picking the bedliner off the bolts and remove them

Or use foam earplug protector's, twist then push them flush into the nut when they expand they fill the cavity nicely!
they pop out when ready for use, or leave it, I used this set up when I applied my POR 15 bed liner last year, nice little trick!!
