Making cab mounts

Well, I wanted to see how crazy I really am with my thinking. The project is an 86 S10. I am doing bodywork on this thing, which most of you know means rockers and cab corners. I am also finding that the cab mounts are pretty well shot. I am sure everyone knows you can't get to the nut inside the mount unless you cut the floor. Here is what I am thinking....making new cab mounts out of stainless steel.

My plan is maybe to cut the section of the cab floor out that the mount is spot welded to and rebuilding that. After making this new mount, completely out of stainless including the nut, it would then be welded back into the floor. Maybe, if this works, it would help keep the rust down in this area. The extra cost of the materials would be a small price to pay if it worked.

What do you all think? Am I going out of my mind with this?
