Personally, I will always recommend to have the floating nut plates removed. It only takes one cross threaded bolt/nut plate that has to be dug out and repaired to change your mind!

If you're replacing the nut plates, make sure you fill the void in the subrail with a piece of hard wood so the insert has more wood to thread into.

Awesome work as per usual! Good to see you on here.
I was just thinkin about ya the other day when all this came up, you know McMaster Carr charges DOUBLE for the good hardwood inserts? You can get them from Stafast if you call the order in. Are you set up with them?
