When I took off the fenders of my 69 bug the nuts mounted in the body were so rusted half of the just twisted the entire nut out of the body instead of twisting out of the nut, anyone know were to find new body mount nuts like that or another way to fix it?

You have a few choices. You can either find a donor VW to cut them out of and weld them in your car, or just buy some 8mm x 1.25 nuts and weld them to a piece of flat stock and then weld that to the car, OR the eay way out is to buy some self tapping sheet metal screws and put them right next to where the missing nut is.

I have used 1/4 inch self tappers in the past with a fender washer. It holds up pretty well.
