Cancer bolts

Hey all, so I'm attempting to bring a 91 hardtop back from the dead and have run across a problem, on the cancer bars there are bolts that secure them to the bottom of the cab.....on one of mine the nut inside the car has broken free and the other hangs up after about 4 turns. If anybody has any ideas to help me out here that would be great. My current thought make access through the inside of the cab but I just need to figure out where

For the sticking one, I would spray some penetrating oil on the threads and just work it back and forth until it either comes out or brakes the nut off. Then if it comes out run a tap through it to make sure it is good. For the other one, I would pull back the rear interior to see if you can see it because it might be inside of a cavity in the chassis which won't help you. Another option would be to cut a hole to the side of it. Just big enough to pull the old nut out and then slip a wrench/new nut in.
