I like Tee nuts fitted from the back but with the spikes flattened -that way you've got a good flat area acting as a washer, cannot pull through the ply, it doesn't weaken the firewall, hold in place with a bit of epoxy. If the fuselage is narrow you can grind some off the flange.

Would any of these do the job Geoff?

Hi flyboy3. The Tee nuts are a good strong fixing. If the back is too near the fuselage side just grind/cut the side off the Tee but. Loosing one or two of the spikes shouldn't be a problem provided you pull them into a snug hole in the ply firewall. The splined ones look a good alternative again pulled into a snug hole in the plywood.
