This worked well for me too. A few hard to get at spots I used my Fein Multimaster to plunge cut through the bolt. I used flat washers and nylocks and held the bolts with vice grips on the few that wanted to spin.

Did you start your floor replacement from the fender wells then work forward from the rear? Or did you start at the front and work back?
Thanks for the help

Started at the rear as my bath floor was only 1/2 there.The center piece would be a good place to start as it is not under the channel.
