Front seat bolt keeps turning and turning and turning. . .

you may have to resort to breaking off the bolt head, then yanking the seat AND carpet then replacing the nut. (if there is a nut, some of the holes may just be threads in the floorpan)
I'm willing to help someday that I'm free after I finish my college project and my Loyale tranny swap

If the nut is still in there but the threads are trashed, try putting a longer bolt of the same thread thru and putting a nut on the nut side thus clamping new threads.
If the nuts isnt there then you have a bigger mess but it might require a fender washer and a new nut, etc. If you can see the ground thru the hole then you have one option, if you cant theres more.

But there may be some access in there, but not much. I know its a raised rib of some sort thats welded to the floor. You may need to remove the rear seat heating ducting (black plastic stuff) after yanking the carpeting, but I'm pretty sure you could get down in there to fix that nut.

Maybe try the bigger bolt idea first... if that fails then it may be worth yanking the interior in an afternoon.
