I have made square nuts from flat stock and plug welded them in for the original look.

Plug weld them, just drill a hole in the sheetmetal, clamp or bolt them in place and then weld the nut through the hole.

Here is the deal..Drill a small hole in the "nubs" sticking out from the nut and weld through those holes..You may wish to try McMaster Carr as they may have that sort of captive nut with the holes already drilled..

Go to McMaster Carr website and search for nut plates and the various designs show up..

Better be careful looking up "nut plates" on the web....... Only the good Lord knows what you may come up with !!
