1984 Stars and Stripes Restoration

Well, peer pressure is a *****! It's -20 today My sled was in 300 pieces and we have a five week old baby. Put the sled back together and the baby was napping so what the hell, lets tear the boat apart! Took two hours to strip her down. I believe it was original carpet (tucked up high on the sides,between hull and foam). I only pulled back the one side before I ran out of time. The Fiberglass floor on the sides of the motor has "bubbled" and pulled away from the foam underneath. There's probably four bubbles around one foot in diameter where you could push it down 1/4". Can anyone point me to a thread or tell me how to fix it? The carpet is laid under the angle iron that supports the motor. Will I need to pull all the lag bolts and raise the motor to lay carpet under again? I read a thread on rub rail replacement where it was stated to drill the rivets and replace with bolts and nuts. How do you access the nuts I seem to have foam everywhere under the rail. I'll post pics tomorrow Travis
