Drill it out then put through bolt and tack the nut on is easiest

do you happen to remember what size ? thanks
Right off hand....I don't.
I'm thinking I drilled just over 1/4". When I drill, I drill a bit off center. I shoot for a "C' shaped remnant without hitting the original threads. Then collapse the bolt and unscrew it with either a tap or a pair of vice grips.

I spun the pressed in nuts, had to weld them in place then got the bolts out. May have to weld yours in if they spin while drilling.
