    Drill it and use an ez out.

    You can get ez outs from Home Depot and Lowes.

    I agree with all of the above but you got some serious rust there man! Put some liquid wrench or something and let it soak some

    As mentioned above, use some type of penetrating oil and then try a set of vice grips followed by the notch and screwdriver method. An EZ out would be my last resort.

    Did it unscrew any at all? If it did back off some then let penetrating oil do its thing . Then go back and forth (screw-unscrew) till it loosens up

    Good ideas guys. Probably try the hack saw first. It didn't budge at all. Not sure how it rusted like that but I hosed it down with wd40 and still didn't budge.

    Need something a lot stronger than WD-40. I would get a can of PB Blaster.

    use a proper penetrating lube. wd40 is kinda useless for stuff like this. liquid wrench works wonders, or mix acetone and power steering fluid 1:1. it works better than pretty much every penetrating oil i've used... just avoid paint.
