Skid Plate Removal Joyner Renegade

Tried to remove my skid plate to access the engine oil drain plug.  The plug isn't near an access hole but located between two holes.  Can't get a wrench in to remove the plug.  Short of drilling a new access hole (which I'm seriously considering), has any one been able to remove the skid plate?  Seems to be a nut on the other end of the screw and there's no way I can access that nut.  They must have bolted the skid plate on before putting the engine into the frame.  Thanks in advance.

Well, I did get the skid plate off.  Used a pry bar between the skid plate and the chassis. That kept enough friction on the nut so that my impact driver could remove the screw.  Now I'll have to find a way to attach it to the frame since the nuts are not accessible.  Probably will consider 6mm stove bolts and nuts if I can find any.  There is a large hold that is off center.  If the skid plate is installed incorrectly, that hole will not line up with the oil drain plug.  That is why I couldn't access my oil drain plug.
