How to safely remove bumper?

I'm in the process of removing rotted rear floor in 1980 Caravelle and want to remove the belly pan, but the bumper has me stumped. The 4 pan-head screws will not budge. I soaked overnight in WD-40, tried percussive maintenance, even went out and purchased the awful-smelling JB Blaster. NOTHING. Since the JB Blaster says it is extremely flammable, I am wondering what the next safe step is? If I attempt to drill them out will that get hot enough to be a problem? Sorry for such a basic question - just want to be safe. Thank you!

Drill it out- it won't burst into flame.
