I was finally able to see the pictures. I think there was something wrong

You're stating what the picture shows, but not stating what you want to do.
Do the bolts in their present position not fit the toilet base holes?
It would be simply enough to chip out enough tile to free the bolts. I'm
sure the toilet base would cover it.
You probably need to expand on the problem before anyone can offer advice.
It's a done deal Wayne. Toilet is back in. Just an amusing post on what
you can find.
Any toilet I've pulled always has had the elongated cutouts for the bolts
at 9 & 3 o'clock. This one was put in at noon and 6 o'clock. Not sure
why. The two slots at 9 & 3 do fit. I suppose tilers are used to going as
close to the ring as possible since the bolts are usually insterted from
the top anyway.
You are right about getting out a piece so the bolts can be slipped out.
The Roto-Zip I got a bit back came with a 3 1/2" dry diamond blade and
did a neat quick job. Also makes it a piece of cake cutting off the bolts
to length to put the caps on.
