Default Trying to disassemble headlight..RUSTED SCREW!!

I have gotten all the way down to the last part of my headlight disassembly, the 2 screws holding the chrome reflective piece to the actual front plastic of the headlight are rusted badly. I got one to come out but in the pic you can see the remaining rusted screw....any ideas on how i can remove this or what i can do??? obvious heavy condensation, was attempting to fix it all back and paint the housing while i was at it.

Put some penetrating oil to it and let it soak for the night. If the grove, where you insert the Phillips screw driver, is rusted over, then use a rotary tool to fabricate a new grove that will allow you to use a fathead screwdriver to remove the screw. You could also use a wire-wheel in the rotary tool to try and clean out the head of the screw as well.
