How to remove a rusted old kitchen faucet

Hi all, I would appreciate any sort of advice to tackle this problem. I have an old kitchen faucet in my basement and it leaked like a siv. I decide to replace it but I cannot get it off. I have completely dismantled the entire thing but the 2 hexnuts holding it on will not budge. I have use two different styles of basin wrench. I have used a ton of W-40. I have used a hammer to try and loosen it. I'm not sure what else I need to do. I do not have an oscillating tool. Is there another cheaper option to break those 2 nuts? or is that the only way.
Below are pictures of the nuts, faucet and the 2 basin wrenches I have already tried.

Take a sawzall with a metal blade or a grinder with a 1/16" thick metal wheel and cut it off above the sink.
