Prep work for lining the Jeep

Ok, so I'm taking out everything in the Jeep to get ready for prepping it for when I decide what I'm going to line it with.

Passenger seat with the Torx (I guess that's what it's called, the star shaped piece?) Is not budging. The same type bolts down the seatbelt clips in the back center, and that came out no problem. I've tried a drill, and I believe the motor will burn out before it budges it. All the other bolts have come out fine! Thoughts... solutions?

Also, I'm not planning on lining for over a week, but I'm a firm believe in proper prep, presumably if I start sanding and cleaning early, taking everything out, it wont be a problem, as long as I keep the Jeep covered?

I'd try an impact driver if you can fit it in straight up and down.

I saw on another post where a guy swears that a little dab of Valve Grinding Compound will make the bit stick without stripping out.

@Jollyczar: I'd use an impact driver, but none of my friends, nor do I myself, have one.
@Ken: I tried some wd-40, wasn't expecting much, maybe will give it a shot.
@Jimboo: Do they sell it at home depot? Will pick up a can tomorrow afternoon. Like I said, already tried some wd. What do I do with the pb blaster, just spray it on and around and wait?

One more thing, wd pales to PB blaster. If wd40 didn't work then that doesn't mean much. After numerous successes with PB I'll never use wd again.

Looks like I'll pick up some PB tomorrow and an impact driver. Did a quick google search, and they all came up pretty pricey, I'll see what the Home Depot carries.

I can usually get away with a 3/8 drive ratchet and torx bits. If it's really stuck, a 2ft length of pipe over the handle of the ratchet helps. Make sure you really lean on the pivot point though, to keep the bit from slipping out and stripping the bolt head.

bingo ratchet and pipe will take out anything or a ratchet and put a closed head wrench hard to explain but you could probably figure it out

Good luck with the liner: you (probably)won't regret it: specially after the first storm you leave your top off!

As far as the seat bolts, I have had good success putting the torx bit into place, without the ratchet yet, and beating it down with a hammer. This always seemed to break it free for me....results, however, may vary...

Squirt some bp from underneath. Also when you do get it out, use some anti seize. As for prep, you can scuff the tub up now, but anything else you do will be in vein. Before you start putting the liner in you are gonna want to make sure it is clean. Sweep, vacuum, and I took a rag with rubbing alchol to get all the little dust out, and to make sure there was no oil or residue left on the tub.

WD40 wont do anything, its a solvent/moisture remover. PB is what you need. Go get a impact driver, use it, and return it if don't want to spend the cash. Make sure you use impact ready bits and NOT normal bits as they probably will shatter since they aren't strong enough. I also find a ratched or break bar with an extension usually gives you enough leverage, pending you don't strip the damn thing!
