Another note on this type of bolt.  Usually the recess for the wrench
isn't very deep - which is why they use the 12 point wrench ... to keep
the bolt head pretty small.

Make sure the hole in the bolt head is completely cleaned out.

A side effect of the recess being shallow, is that if there's any 
dirt or old grease/undercoat/whatever in the recess, the wrench
won't go in deep enough and it'll strip right away!  Also be sure 
to hold the wrench *really* straight into the bolt head recess.

These things strip real easy, and if you do that you'll have even
more fun <!>

Don't ask me how I know these things  :-)
