1977 Body mounts rusted!

Gents,
Sorry if this has been covered. I searched through the forums and couldnt find help! So here is my question. I am planning on replacing the body mount bushings. I ordered the kit and its sitting in my garage. However upon inspection the place where the body screws to the frame is rusted out and collapsing. Who sales those! Do i need to take off the body to replace it? Thanks!

The mounts are through "hat channels" or rail or body supports. Hat channels rust and collapse. They can be replaced... easiest way is to remove the tub.

Classic Enterprises makes and sells reproduction supports, in heavier gauge than original.
