Are you tring to undo the nuts directly on the inside of your bumper?
 
The bumper also bolts to brackets which can be undone from inside the engine bay.
You will still need to undo the end mounts that attach to the front guards but access is easy for the ends as these are undone from inside the wheel arch.
 
This will remove the bumper and all its brackets as one part.
You can then undo whatever you like from there.
 
If you do decide to break the bumper down further be aware that the smaller bumper bolts are usually rusted together so be prepared to break a couple.
You can reduce your chances of breaking one by cleaning any exposed threads with a die nut and also give them a good soaking in some penetrating fluid a couple of days before attempting to undo them.
 
 
You will be best off having a friend help guide the bumper off and also have somebody help you guide it back on when your car is painted to avoid scratching your new paint.

I didn't realise you could take it off from inside the engine bay and I'm not sure if I will be putting it back on
Not a problem.
 
Im glad that I could you help out with some relevant info.
