You could be stuck on the trim retainers on the sides. Plus, you said yourself it's pretty rusted and old. If you suspect it's stuck on the bumper shocks (the thing you took the bolts out of), you can try unbolting the bumper shock itself. It's just 2 13mm bolts behind each shock from under the car. Pretty easy to get to all things considered.

Thanks. Its those side retainer bolts I want to get at to replace the existing trim. Why did they have to add those making them accessible only from inside the bumper when all the rest of the bumper trim is held by clips to let you pry it out? Anyway, I'll try the from the shocks.

I believe at least one of the bumper shock bolts is accessed through the trunk, maybe both top ones?
