Trying to get stock sponsoons off 04 RXP to install the Rivas here soon when i order them from Hulk but when i loosen the nuts the studs just spin on some of them, any ideas....

You will have to hold backup on the ones that are spinning. It will be a pain in the ass unfortunately
It will be easier if you can get some help..... preferably someone with long arms.

what if i take a dremel tool and make a notch in the end of the bolt to allow a flat head to stick in and then hold it as i turn the nut off...hmmm

good idea meeper. it may work.

Yeah i think it will as long as my screwdriver is small enough for the nut to thread off on over it...

This is why it pays to heat each bolt first. SD uses too much lock tite and the heat breaks it down so the nut can come off easily. Once they start to spin, you are out of luck !

I was once told, that you could put the tip of a good soldering gun on the head of the bolt to warm it up...PR...

you really need a big soldering iron that doesn't have the short duty cycle of a soldering gun. I hate it that you're having trouble but glad that it came up because I need to get one. I made a heat shield out of some .038 aluminum by drilling a hole in it and used a propane torch on intake grate bolts, this won't help you on the sponson though.
