broke my intensifires

    Like the title says, I broke my intensifires. I'm in the process of painting my mm2 and I wanted to take the lights off. One bolt on the driver side snapped last year. So I tried unbolting the only one left and it loosened half way then the nut jammed n now the bolt and nut turn together. And the same thing on passenger side. I was able to take one bolt off, but the other got jammed and know turns freely.

    I lubes them with wd40 everyday for a few days prior to attempting to take them off.
    Has this happened to anyone?
    Anything I can do other than spending 400$ on new ones?

    Morrissey thanks for the tip. I'm guessing I put the mounting plates back with new rivets?
