So this weekend I was removing the hardware to swap body bushings. #6 position, the captured nut seems to be spinning in place. What's the best way to get these loose? Cut a small access hole in the trunk above them? Didn't want to go too crazy but wanted to see what others have done. Thanks!

That's about the best way to do it. Attack from above.

If you access it from above, use a cut off wheel and only cut three sides of a square and bend up the floor.. That way it will be easier to position the floor piece back into the correct position before welding or sealing.
