Gas Tank Skid Rear Bolts snapping

so after PB blasting for 2 days 2 out of 4 bolts snapped right away. I dont even want to finish it because I dont have a solution to the problem just yet.

been searching only and people just say to weld new bolts but how in the hell to get them into the holes where the old ones were at.

IS THERE ANY SIMPLE WAY FOR THIS.

They are carriage bolts. Pound them out and get new ones. Or better yet, buy a Savvy Aluminum Gas tank skid, and it will come with new bolts and tank straps.

x2, just a carriage bolt. Knock the old ones out and replace. Simple.
