New Studs on Fender Flare Retainer

Hello all, My right passenger rear fender flare came unhooked from the retainers. Read through the forums and found that there was 4 or 5 bolts with 10mm nuts to get the retainers off. When i began to look and feel the studs they were mostly bent. I began to take them off and after i pb blasted them they pretty much all broke off. I removed the old studs by taking a grinder to them and now i'm stuck on how i should put new nuts and bolts on, You can not access the back of the bolt when you put the fender flare on the retainer. and they can not spin because you have to get the fender flare tight to the body to make it flush. I would appreciate any advice and opinions that you guys could give me about coming up with a set up to get it back on.

Thanks so much!
