Default Plugs in the floor boards

I will be doing some floor work in the spring and have been trying to figure out the rubber plugs in the floor pans.

Are they designed as drains or do they have another purpose. I can't really see how they would work as drains as the rubber plug seems to be tight in the hole (or they have just hardened that way).

Seems trivial, but I was just wondering......

The plugs are solid, so they definitely are not drains. I guess that the holes were there to align the panels in a jig for welding at the factory.

Default RE: Plugs in the floor boards

I added factory original seatbelts to my Galaxie convertible and there were some floor pan plugs that I had to remove to do that.
Is it possible that some of them are for the optional seat belt kit?

My '60 Bird doesn't have belts so i don't know.

There are dimples on the floorboards for where the seatbelt bolts go, but no actual holes. See: http://www.squarebirds.org/seatbelt_installation.htm .
