Without seeing the model I'm guessing that the horizontal bolts are holding the engine mount in place. To get at the LG screws you will need to remove the cowl and engine. Then when you re-fit all this stuff you may want to consider replacing the nuts for the horizontal screws with T nuts that pull into the plywood bulkhead and shorten the screws so that they do not block the LG screw heads. I would also suggest that the LG screws be replaced with internal nut plates where nuts are soldered to the plate and the plate is secured with glue or small screws so you can use screws inserted from below for a smoother look than the exposed screws and nuts that are there at present.
