I know, it's the simplest of tasks to change a license plate -- until you see how rusted the screws are.

I can turn the screws, but they don't look to be backing out. I'm concerned I may be turning the plastic fitting that they screw into, but how would I know if that was happening?

So, thoughts on next steps? Try drilling them out and using the torch method? Try gaining access to the fittings by removing the interior panel?

Thanks! (and curses to the DMV for requiring new plates due to my vehicles age...).
