License plate frame in the back stuck, ideas?

My license plate frame in the back seems to be stuck, I think the bolts have developed rust and won't come out. I've already tried some WD-40 and a power tool, and the bolts won't budge. Any idea on what I can do to remove this?

Had a similar problem with mine. It turned out that the nylon inserts that the bolts fit into were turning with the bolts. I got the bolts out by using a vice-grip and pulling (or pushing) and turning at the same time. Once I got the bolts and inserts out, I used some sealer on the inserts to seal them to the car body...problem solved.
