My BJ8, which was all but original stock when I bought it, only had a 
couple U-shaped pieces of vinyl glued to the bottoms to cover the 
holes.  Mine fell off long ago, and I keep meaning to cut some more 
pieces and glue them in, but duct tape works pretty good to at least 
cover the holes until I get a round tuit.

Would have been pretty funny if BMC made an effort to prevent corrosion 
on the seats, when they didn't make an effort anywhere else (well, 
except for some drainage holes drilled in a few places).
