if you have any more that are stuck, spray liberally with Liquid Wrench or PB BLaster (don't use WD40, not nearly as good). try to get it down or around the bolt hole if there is any access at all. if they come out a little bit then start to bind or won't come out, tigthen them back down, then loosen, then tigthen. repeat this a few times before trying to get them all the way out. tap the head with a hammer.
if you can get it out at least about 1/4 inch, this has often worked great for me, use a prybar to exert alot of upward force on the bolt while simultaneously turning it out with the socket wrench. need enough room under the head to get the prybar / digging bar under it. i've had alot of bolts that come out a little bit, but then spin in place and won't come the rest of the way.
drills and sawzall can finish a really tough job.
