Hi, I sikaflexed a load of timber lengths onto the metal floor and then screwed the floor to them. It worked realy well! I also insulated and flash taped in between the timber which made a massive difference to the sound levels (no exhaust noise) and less road noise.

Hope this helps!

Its has got to be as near permanent as possible or it will shift. Using a polyurethane adhesive is the recommended method.
Brute force will remove it if you ever have to and to avoid holes in the floor you must "glue it down". ( I wish the guys who installed the ply floor and lining in my van had heard of it. Blooming holes every where and they also used wood screws ! )

Have fun..........

My original ply floor (Probably like many others? was held down with screws)..:(

For our conversion though, i have put 9mm batons down ontop of the flashbanded floor, between the ribs & the new floor, will lay on top of these (well foil insulation first) using the 6 lashing points to hold it down.
I got the company to only cut the holes as wide as the lashing bolts so i don't have to worry about getting the cups to sit them in.

I can then remove the floor as & when i require to clean underneath, or even to run cabling for any future elec goodies we might fit in?
