YJ Windshield Hinge

Does anybody know if you have to take the dash off on a 92 YJ to get to the windshield hinge (lower) bolt nuts on the back side. Is there an easier way to get to them? Can't seem to get to them and my FSM doesn't explode that area out. Any help or experiance would be appreciated!

My buddy tore his '91 dash all out to get to those bolts and still couldn't budge them. 11 years of rust and the tough rubbery sealing compound they smear all over the inside just did him in. He just welded the mirror brackets on and called it good.

I wound up drilling mine out, and getting new ones from 4wd. It was part of a larger order, so it was more of a convieance. They were a little expensive $1 each, as it might have been $.30 at a hardware store, but if you have the same countersinks, i coudln't find them.

The problem is the NUTS on the back side. I can turn the bolt from the front side but the nuts on the inside are spining. I would have to get new nuts up there if I drilled them out (that's if I could keep them from spinning while I drilled them). Thanks but I have already ordered a dozen bolts from 4WHD. Thanks for the suggestions.
