Yea, so, what's your point. That happens to exhaust bolts and nut's all the time. If you ned to remove them and want to replace them. Just go to any hardware store and get 8mmX1.25 nut's & bolts with some washers and replace them.
Spray the old ones with PB Blaster before you try to break them free and use anti-sieze compound on the new ones.
