Quick release fasteners

Does anyone know of quick release fasteners that will work on the front side panels of the T7? I love the AS crash bars but the lower portion blocks the bottom side panel fastener, making it really hard to get a tool in there.

After looking at options for quick release fasteners/spring nuts I think I will end up going the thumb screw route. I haven’t been able to find any quick release version that will work. 
 

Now I just need to find a good M5x10 to replace the stock bolt.

I have the same issue with removing that bolt since I also have the ADV Spec crash bars.  I have found that a 8 mm ratchet wrench does the trick for quickly removing that bolt in the panel.  Let me know if you settled on a solution.

I bought some cheap ones off Amazon. I'm not sure about the fairings on the outside, but size 19mm work for the bottom 2 screws on the inside near the radiator. So about 4 total. The top one would work I guess if you dremeled the tab, but that was too much for me.
