My dashboard retaining screws get so tight in the fiberglass they are screwed into, that the heads strip and one has broke off. I am replacing all dash screws tonight with new finishing washers and wondering what to use as a semi-permananet thread lubricant (that a guy might have around the house) to avoid the seizures in the future. Bearing grease?

Before you reinsert, put a drop of Dawn Dishwashing detergent on the threads or in the hole, they will go in easier and come out easier when you want to or need to remove them.
