Had one strip out when we lined the outside of the tub.... just grind the head off and it will fall through as described earlier, very quick and easy to do....

Not the sharpest bulb in the box....

My Jeep is possessed with the goal of making me lose my religion....

Take them all off and throw them away, replace with stainless button head cap screws, nuts and lock washers.

You got lucky, that is an easy job! I had to cut the head off the very rear most bolt on my 95 with the hard top and family bar in place! I had to grind the head off with a dremel tool and those tiny cot off wheels... I went through quite a few of them, but got it off.

Heat them with a torch, can't believe nobody suggested heat. I didn't grind the heads, they are big enough to grip with a vice grip.
Time and budget build...lots of pics:::: [url][/url]
