Has anybody an idea where from I could buy these diverse rubber plugs in the floor. Expecially the little ones on the rH and lH side looking like a little Christmas tree.
I am restoring the floor from the outside and moist of the plugs are worn.

Thanks for your help in advance

Bill,

Frequently these plugs don't just deteriorate but the floor also rots around the edges of the hole. I think the holes were to drain the corrosion resistant metal coating after the bodyshell has a bath prior to painting. In the past I have scraped back the underseal, inside and out, treated the rust then patched with glassfibre from both sides before double coating with rubberised underseal. I checked with my MOT-ers who say this is fine as long as you are not within 30 cm of a suspension pick up point.

Hi Paul, thanks a lot. I noticed these rusty environment and have decided to close the holes after derusting and preparing with 3 times chassis-Paint. This is a special paint for the underfloor which 3 times put on resist to even stones.
