I did a bit on this some years ago but here is the gist of it.

As the decks are balsa sandwich you need a plate on the deck larger than the fitting foot and an even larger one under the deck. This gives a better spread of the load without hard edges. If you carefully cut a square out of the headlining you can fix it back afterwards.
