I've been working on one of the most annoying projects I've ever been involved with - replacing the toilet seat in my bathroom.

Seems like it shouldn't be all that difficult - just unscrew the old seat and install the new. Problem is that it's a combination of plastic and metal keeping the seat on...a metal bolt and a plastic nut on each side...and the bolts are rusted. Those effin' plastic fasteners don't want to go anywhere!

I've been using a wrench to unscrew the plastic nuts and have managed to remove one of the two so far (I've been working on this for a total of about 90 minutes, in 30 minute increments). The wrench mutilates the plastic but oh well. What is super-annoying is that the side I'm still working on is the side closest to the tub, so I have to wedge myself in between the toilet and the tub and hold myself at a weird angle to get any kind of grip.

I'm cranky enough about it that I'm trying to come up with other ways of removing it...anyone want to bring me a blowtorch?
