:bang :bang Taking the body off. Tried to get #4 mounting bolt off but feels like it's just spinning. Don't see any way to get at the nut. Don't want to try the other bolts till someone can enlighten me as to how to get the rusted bolts off.

Can you get a die grinder with a cut-off wheel in there?

4 is the easiest one as the bolt goes in from the bottom. Just cut off the bolt head in the wheel well. The cage must be loose and the nut is spinning in the rear compartment. Only way to get at the rivets to remove them to be able to put some fresh ones in is to lift the body, remove the metal support where the body mount rests on. The rivets are under there.
