Steel Surrey Top - Floating Nuts?

Recommended Posts

Should the captive rear fixing nuts on an original factory steel Surrey roof float?

My roof has been has been resprayed (thick undercoat and top coats) off the car (and retrimmed), and the fixing bolts no longer line up.

If they should float, I’ll go scraping to free them.

Many thanks,

No the rear ones are fixed spot welded flanged nuts, the fronts are floating in cages.
