Exhaust bolts

Okay so I got my '97 shell on stands and I'm truing to see how I'm going to bolt on the exhaust. The exhaust is completely out of the car with the y pipe disconnected and the muffler and tail zip tied to the car. I wanted to take the bolts off to connect the muffler end to the y pipe but it seems like its too rusted. Should I cut them off and get a new set? Or is there a better way? I can't get any leverage to properly attempt to unscrew them. And if I cut them off, does anyone know where I can get a new set of bolts? And no I can't take it to an exhaust shop it's a shell on stands

Wd40 and give it a try. Some times the bolts will go back in. I'd go with stainless steel because of the restless factor. Do you have a local nut and bolt store?

I pretty much soaked them in WD40 and let them sit for 2 nights. I cut them off already so I guess I'll have to buy new ones anyways. Ill check autozone, if not I have a local ACE hardware store that I'm pretty sure sells them. So stainless steel nuts and bolts is the way to go then?
