Removing body mount bolts

I could use some advise.

I have a 78 CJ-5 Levis Renegade with the 258 I6 engine. It has 38,000 miles on it. It was kept outside for about 5 years but was garage kept for the rest. It has some significant rust in the floor area of the front seats but the rest of the tub is in good shape. I am doing a body off restoration. I'm ready to remove the tub from the frame but am having trouble with the body mount bolts. We put the first one on an impact gun and it broke loose on the inside weld and just spins.

Any suggestions on removing these nuts without breakin them loose?

I'm setting up a website to post some pics and should have it done today. This Jeep is totally stock and well worth the trouble and expense to restore. My first vehicle ever was a 78 CJ-7 and it's been my goal for the last 20 years to get another one and restore it.

Depending on which bolt it is that broke loose, you'll need to cut an access hole so you can get a wrench on the nut.
I think a couple of them can already be accessed, but some cannot.
