Sub-Floor Removal: Bolts Under Door Frame

Hey guys! My sub-floor replacement is going well, but I ran into a small issue. On my 1976 Argosy 22', the second section back of flooring has 3 bolts that hold it into the frame under the door frame. I cannot see the top of the bolts, I can only see the nuts under the frame from the bottom.

If I cut the nuts off the bolts, will i be able to punch them up through and release the small section of flooring left in the trailer? If I do that, how can I replace them in the new flooring? Any other thoughts suggestions?

Note: This is a shell on floor replacement. Also, I am doing this all without taking the bell skin off. Thanks.

Do a search for 'elevator bolts' and you'll find all the information you could ever want. Good luck!

I never thought much about it. Thought it was a Toy for weekend warriors
(which is fine) but no it is an incredibly useful tool

Good Luck

Tony - I have been using a Dremel to cut the E-Bolts off. No biggie. I just wanted to make sure that these are ok to remove. Thanks for your help.
