I'm assuming those are not 1/4-20. If it were me (and this is just my opinion), I would cut the bolts off from the out side with a cutoff wheel, punch the bolts through and shake them out. Drill and tap the wood for 1/4-20 and use nylon bolts. Saves the gear mounts in an accident. The right way to do it would be to use 1/4-20 T-nuts, but since you say you dont have access, may not be an option. I would grind it more open for accessibility.
