Question Door Hinge Replacement (Helppp)

Hey everyone!
I知 brand new to the forum and I知 looking for some help. I just bought some stainless steel door hinges to replace my stock ones. However, I知 having a really hard time taking my torx screws out. I already stripped out one of the bolts so I知 afraid to keep going. Has anyone ever replaced their door hinges or have any advice on how I can easily take out the torx bolts holding the hinges? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Spray some WD40 on the screws, let it sit then unscrew

If you have to go out and buy WD40, I'd instead recommend PB Blaster. Hell, I've used Carb Cleaner and Belt Conditioner before with great results! Just go slow, take your time, and don't even think of using a drill.
