95 YJ hard top screws are stuck

The previous owner never took it off. I assume its rust or something so I WD40'd the screws, then took a score driver but to no avail. Then the cordless drill. Stopped it dead. Then the plug in electric drill. Not even a wiggle. Do you guys have an idea for me?

Can you cut the screws with a dremel?

Had the same problem, PO never took it off. In the end I had to use disk grinder (mine hooks up to an air compressor). It will be faster than a dremel, just be careful. Also check to see if the "rectangle" nuts aren't just twisting around, that was a big problem for me.

Have you tried a hand impact driver? This worked wonders on the the last jeep I took apart. Good luck!
