I attempted to remove the lead tracks this weekend and found that when they were installed the factory cut the bolts about half way through and then snaped them off... a real pain in the hand ( the screw driver kept slipping) The one screw that is giving me trouble is the one above the bulkhead just forward of the nav station, i cant get a socket or box wrench on it. I hate to have to cut the bulkhead to get to it but I need to re seat the track

You might be able to cut the nut off with a mini grinder or a dremel. Alternately if you are carful you could likely drill the head off the bolt so that it would fall through.
If you do cut the bulkhead be sure to reseal the edge with epoxy, I had to replace a bulkhead due to water running into the top edge.
