The deck is about 15mm ish. Just don't like the consequences if they don't hold.

I could do, but wanted to keep it original. also the consols are so small and space being limited , i may need to tilt it forward to get to tops of fuel tanks and Fuel filters etc..

If i were gonna go down the route of glassing it in, i would probally change the consol to a double as that would involve re flowing the deck which is edging on a major project and great expense etc

There's not much to glass in on a 4.7 console, they are quite weak to be honest.

You could make a stainless frame about 75 mm wide that fits under the flange. You can bond and multiple screw that to the floor and have the fixings on that. If you use 3 mm stainless that will be the only height you will gain. Easy enough to do. Could weld about 10 stud around it and have dome nuts and penny washers showing around flange. Take it off when you like but you'll never rip it off the floor again

I'm probably a bit out of touch, but all the rivnuts I've ever used have been on relatively thin plate, upto around 1/8" (3mm for anyone under 50 ) so not sure how they would hold on a deck

I think I would go with either Nugent or Biffers idea

Gotcha.. thats the way to go go.. or even above the flange have an additional bar to wrap around the foot of the grp. to match up with the studs, would look better than penny washers poss..
