OK i got my new hood in and tried putting it on with a friend but seems could not even start removing it. I saw the DIY install on the hood<which is 90% common sense> but the first part mainly is to remove the 2 12mm's on each side and for some reason they will not turn!! we tried wd-40 and a bunch of things to try and it lose but it seems it was painted with the stock hood or something and is black over the screw. Anyway is there something we are doing wrong? it is not a strength issue or any of that it is just NOT moving. IT even broke the 12mm for my ratchet!! so any input or people who have done it before please let me know! My friend who was helping me has removed/put on numerous hoods in the past and had no idea why it was not moving!! before I am forced to drop it off at body shop PLEASE!! HELP ME!!! Thanks guys!!

Try a breaker bar instead of a ratchet and be sure to use a six point socket.
