That or after you weld the nut on you can re-thread the nut. This will save you from some serious aggravation when assembling in the field. Don't ask me how I know!
I was going to suggest welding the nut on as well.

Welding the bolt would work also and may help with assembly. You could mount one section then your bolts would act as 'pins' to steady the next till you get a nut threaded. Of course then youd be trying to fit the bolt to the hole while holding one section while balancing in the air about the time youd drop your nuts

Take some of those clamps to use as extra hands when you get to the lease.

Tell me about the windows you built...material for frame, glass etc
