Default Front Breaks bolts

I got the front wheels off, and the pads out now, trying to get the rotors off, I'm guessing the bolt size is a 19MM and they will not budge, anyone have an idea how to get these loosened up? I got them soaking with some spray on lube oil.

you could try placing a sturdy pipe over the handle of the wrench making it longer.

Pretty sure its 18 mm - most sets come with 17 & 19, but not 18, and I had to hunt up an 18.
Hold socket wrench with one hand, smack wrench with a hammer to crack it.

They were pretty bad, probably the original pads and rotors

Probably true -

Yeah they are still on, I got a electric impact gun, heating torch, and 8 hours of daylight tomorrow, I am going to paint the calipers a lighter shade of blue to give it some flavor.
One of us is going down, the bolts or me and I'm very stubborn.

Remember righty tighty , lefty lucy ....
While your under there if you get you work done, I recommend using the impact gun (they are not all created equal) on the rear LCA bolts, your rotors look like ours do in PA after a winter or two with winter road salt. I had one rear LCA bolt I had to Cut off because it rusted and spun the retaining flat bolt
in the frame. (Most fun I've had with my pants on in years)... Of course this is unnecessary if you have already changed or removed you LCA previously.
