Tailgate hinge mounting screws? '65 J200

So I pulled off my old rusty tailgate this afternoon, it's pretty toasted. Well, the bottom of it is. I'm still debating whether I'm going to attempt to repair it by replacing the entire bottom section with some tubing or make something out of wood.

In any case, the phillips head screws that hold the tailgate hinges to the truck were totally stripped out. I wound up drilling them out 1/4" deep til the hinges popped loose. I couldn't see an easy way to get at the backside of these, does anybody have a trick for this?

Yes, I did pull off the access cover inside the bed at the taillight, and all i found were wasp nests and some leftover padding from my bench seat.....
