Welding vs bolting

As you may remember, my Volvo really only needs new floors (and tires) to be roadworthy. The problem is I’m really nervous about welding. I WANT to relearn that skill, but I’d rather do it on something more low-risk than a car. Last thing I want is to fry the electronics, start a fire, or both. So anyway, is it *really* necessary to weld my scrap metal over the holes instead of just drilling and bolting it down? I get that water will still find its way in through the cracks when I hit puddles, but I honestly don’t care about that. I just want the car on the road as soon as possible.
