    My base plates have tabs welded to them that run through slots in the floor. the bushing assembly bolts to the tabs and is mounted to the various frame mounts. I just siliconed the base plates and it's pretty tight. I do have several tubes that go straight through and a couple of them are just right at the size of the hole and have a bead around them, that's all. With a rigid chassis they don't move much. The other pair has a duct tape boot around them to keep it sealed up. We've used deck-tite boots on a couple of penetrations also. They're a weather tight boot for sealing pipes coming through roofs on buildings. Maybe a home depot as a source? They're the gray boots around the cage bars in the engine compartment. You might be able to see them in some of the pics on our site.
