Rusted Bolts on Grill

Does anyone know of a good way to get rusted bolts/nuts out of the grill? I`m trying to repaint my grill/get the rust off of it but I can`t get the damned thing off to do it! I don`t have a blowtorch so heating it is not an option. Sorry if this is a stupid question but I`m new to cars in general/do it yourself stuff :)

Yep. Still trying to figure out which bolts you're talking about though.

Well they don`t have the characteristic hexagonal top of a bolt but they have nuts on the side facing towards the engine. I finally just cut through them and had some new galvanized ones laying around, used them instead so I could stop them from rusting out again.
