vise grips on exposed part of bolt if possible!?

use lots of wd40 or similar or you could always cut the nut off as a last resort...

I can see a little bit of the bolt is exposed.. Maybe cut a slit in it, and make it so I can put a flat head screwdriver on it, and use a vice grips to clamp on the screwdriver, and try to unscrew it. or drill it out some how.

You could try a reverse drill bit. Sometimes that works.

Spray it with wd-40 or pb blaster and let it sit a good hour before working on it.

That's exactly why I bought Blox LCAs off of ebay and new bolts from hondapartsdeals.com.

I slotted the bolt and turned it out with a screw driver, but if it's really that rusted in there, you may have to try the alternate methods suggested.

lots of PB Blaster and let it sit for awhile after spraying it, maybe overnight if possible, it will/should screw right out after soaking in the ol' PB overnight.
