Bolts inside B-pillar/ bedside

Am I looking at things wrong, or are there 2 bolts on each side that go through the bedsides, floor and into welded nuts on the torsion box support plate? That look to be inside the B-pillar with no access?

This looks to be the plate they are threaded into

Looking to remove my bedside, how do people handles these bolts?

Found this thread where they were discussed. Looks like I am going to have to torch them.

Makes more sense now. Those bolts do not hold the bedside on. Had some p.o. booger weld holding it.

Nope, those booger welds are factory. An indicator of the precision manufacturing methods of the 70s

I just had to get to mine recently, I cut a small hole in the top of the bedside over the B pillar (it was rusted, I needed to patch it anyway) and strung a bunch of extensions together to reach down in there. Pretty easy.
