Removing front and rear bumpers, grille and front valence on '66

First, does anyone know of a particular order in which I must disassemble the front end (bumper, grille, nosepiece and lower valence)? Second, does anyone have any ideas as to how to get bumpers off when the bolts are rusted and the bumpers are bent slightly? I'm not entirely sure how I'm supposed to even reach the bolts with hand tools, let alone get a grinder w/a cut off wheel in there. Is it easier to do this from underneath the car (on a hoist)? Anyone?
