2 suggestions:

1. Try Kano Kroil, better pentrating lubricant than WD-40, albeit more expensive.

2. Use a propane torch to heat the bolt. Make sure you let it cool before you try to remove it again. Heating the bolt with cause it to expand, and when it cools and contracts it can sometimes cause the bolt to break free of whatever is binding it.
