I have a new trunk floor and main floor and am wondering which way the six floor drain hole covers face? Does the the raised area in the middle of the drain hole cover face up....or down...or depend on which hole you are covering? Or does it depend on which direction the lip around the edge of the drain hole faces....up or down? My original floors and plugs are long gone and I don't remember.All six drain holes in my original main and trunk floor were stamped with the lip around the edge facing down. On my repro floor, the drain holes in front of the front seats are stamped like the original, with the lip facing down. The two drain holes in front of the rear seat are stamped with the lip facing up, however.Each of the two drain holes in my new trunk floor have two screw holes at opposite corners. The other four holes do not.So based on the info given, which way should I place my drain hole covers?....................And also, is it correct that each trunk floor cover is screwed in as well and seam sealed.....or should those holes not be there.
Thanks to everyone for the info so far.I am clear now that the raised center of the plug faces up.I am a little fuzzy now about what the plugs should look like when looking at the bottom of a correctly finished car. Did the bottom of the car have it's final coat of paint (not including body color over spray) when the plugs were installed?If so, you would see the plug (in bare metal?) and the seam sealer.......both with no paint on them? Is this correct?
It appears galvanized to me.. and looks pretty correct.....
If you want to get technical, they should have a date stamp in the center of the raised portion as well.Steve
it seems to make sense that they would be stamped with week of productionl.. and that some would be stamped so lightly as to not be visible, or be very hard to read after 40 yrs...?

Looking at stamped plugs some for sure seem to have been roll-marked, meaning a mechanical stamper was used which rolls circular to stamp. Used in high volume stamping! http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=2438.0;all
I I believe it was John H mentioned the letter designated the stamping plant it was produced at. George
