2006 Bounder - Replacing all original vinyl & carpet
Have started to pull up all original vinyl and carpet - objective to replace all with new sheet vinyl. Seeing a number of what I call stove bolt heads - approx 1 and 1/4". Certainly these are connecting to the frame underneath. Curious how to handle as when new sheet vinyl goes down these will cause it to not lay flat? Thinking about grinding the top to make flat. Attaching two photos.

While we have a 2006 Fleetwood Expedition, almost identical to the Bounder, those were not carriage bolts. They are gigantic pop rivets. I was able to grind the heads off. Drove the rivet on through to where they dropped out of the frame. I enlarged the diameter to recess a fender washer using a forstner and used a hex bolt. I then laid a resin and marble dust man made 18" sq tile, because the heads were just below the surface of the sub floor. I did fill the space between the head and the wood with floor leveler to prevent future depression.
Almost finished removing all the vinyl & carpet. Still seeking thoughts on how to cope with the bolts - pictured. There are like 18 of them. Can I grind and flatten the dome of the stove bolts? Again Thanks
