'95 D90 ST roll cage issues - help needed

I removed the torx bolts that join the "B pillar" and the slanted members that run toward the back. On both sides the lower bolt threads were pretty mushed and that can only mean the two interior nuts' threads are garbage as well. Everything's covered with that rubber/plastic "stuff." Any way to replace those nuts? I don't think trying to recut the threads is gonna be worth the effort.
I'm open to any repair or replace option suggestion at this point, cuz I'm stumped.
Thanks for any help.

Just clean the nut threads with a tap and get new bolts. You will be just fine.

OK. I think it's a 1.25 thread, but I'll check. I have a metric tap & die set that I haven't had to use much, but now's one of those times for sure. Thanks
