Ok, I have a 26 Runabout-Roadster that I need to remove the turtle. I already have the rear fenders and running boards off to get blasted. It looks like there are 4 bolts inside just behind the seat...will I need to remove the backrest fabric to get to a nut on the other side or are the bolts threaded into a fixed nut of some sort ? I've tried to turn the bolt from inside the turtle deck but it doesn't want to move.

Those are fixed nuts depending how long they been in they could be rusted in use some penetrate oil on the bolts.
