Default Securing the floorpan

What method is best to fit the floorpan?

I have a number of options
  • 1. Rivnut
    2. Pop rivet
    3. Self tapper
    4. Panel bond
Which ever I decide, I am going to use panel bond. This is firstly to create a watertight seal between chassis and floorpan and secondly for strength.

So I suppose the question is more to do with whether I need anything else and if so what?

I was happy to use widely spaced self tappers initially, until I saw a picture where rivets where used. I do see a problem with rivets, which is the need to seal the holes after.

Any and all suggestions welcome.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
