We recently purchased a used 2020 LT. Really like the car but wanted the false cargo floor and cargo hiding shield that comes std on the Premier. I looked at buying the parts from GM, but with shipping, it was going to cost about $300. Instead, I found a wrecking yard that had some Premier Bolts in stock and purchased the parts from them.
Total including shipping for the side cleats, attach bolts, the floor, the shield and the two shield attach point gizmos was $150. It worked out great. Here are the steps and some photos.

1) Remove the circular trim area that covers the cleat attach points. You might wonder why such big holes for such small bolts.. the reason is that the cleats have standoffs that are about 1/4" proud of the back surface of the cleats. This makes up for the gap that is between the hard mounted point in the car, and the interior plastic trim. So, I removed the plastic that is inside of the recessed circles. Used a Dremel tool with a small router bit, then a small drum sander on the dremel to clean it up. That's all there is to it. Simple install. With cleats in, the floor just slides in.

Seems to me it was listed as an option on my 2020. Took the cheap board out and it has been sitting in garage since.
You can "store" the board at the bottom of the lower cargo compartment - saves space in the garage and makes it always available in case some situation comes up where you want to use it (for transporting long cargo that requires a flat floor, for example).

When COVID-19 first arrived, I put a corrugated cardboard floor over the full sized OEM spare in our cargo area. The wife liked having a flat floor back there, and since we aren't worried about washing our food anymore, I figured I'd get the OEM false floor. I knew it would work just fine without installing the brackets, but didn't count on it staying up, when lifted, without them. We lucked out. it works perfectly, and took ten seconds to install.

Why do I already have this features in my 2019 LT? Did they start to remove the feature on the LT to make it only available on the premier for 2020 and up? Or is it mine that is not a LT?
I didn't have it on my '17 Bolt LT but paid about $100 from my Chevy dealer for the bracket and false floor. I removed it when I traded for the '21LT. It came with it though so I needed have bothered.

Please, I want to be sure what we're looking at, here.

You were able to fit a Bolt wheel with a regular sized tyre in the back, and the Chevy Bolt's false floor fits over top of it?

I'm surprised I haven't seen this mentioned elsewhere!

Recently, I lucked into a set of 2023 Bolt 2LT wheels and tyres with zero miles, so I have my 2020 Bolt LT wheels as spares, and I'd look into doing this if it's what I think I'm seeing. :)

Thanks very much for your help.
