Anyone add tie-down hooks or L-track in a wagon?

Has anyone found good places to bolt in tie-down hooks in a passenger wagon? I know many folks use the seat tracks for anchoring motorcycles, but I'd like to secure a 5-gal water jug on top of the blower motor and some other stuff on the walls. Then maybe a couple bicycle fork mounts to the floor. Think it would be ok to drill L-Track into the carpet sub-floor?

I didn't even think of the walls. Good idea. Did you pull the trim and mark where to drill or just hit it with some screws?

If you want something super cheap and simple - your wheel wells have threaded bolt holes in the top middle mount point. You can just thread in the stock van d ring.

I'm also in the process of mounting 80/20 to the black part of the rear [not the gray as above] I'm doing that for cabinetry, but the same concept would work with L-Track or something similar. Plusnuts are your friend.

Awesome! I'll at least add those d rings. I broke the round covers on the threaded holes anyway.

Belloinsell, I broke the covers as well. That is why I got someone else to do put the L track in for me.

Benjamin Loyle, I will also add a d ring. Thanks

Ben, did the stock van D ring come with the bolt or did you have to buy one. Do you know the size?
Thanks
Steven

so I just bought a set of 6 off ebay. Came with the ring / bolt / and locking washer to keep the bolt from separating.

The bolt's a biggun - measures 10mm in diameter, so that makes it an M10, right?
