Heat... It works wonders on the torx body bolts.. Oh and valve lapping compound on the bit help keeps it from stripping. To drop the windsheild you just need to remove the 4 spreaderbar bolts and the 2 larger torx bolts on the dash. Oh and the sunvisors!

After you turn valves on a lathe, or new valves even, they have a "rough" edge. You take this compund, smear it on the valve and the seat, suction cup a wood handle to the top of the valve, and spin the valve back and forth in its seat. Kind of like trying to start a fire. It mates the valve to its seat. Almost the consistancy of rubbing compound for paint.

The valve lapping compound is used on the torx BIT. A small dab on the bit helps it bite into the torx bolt head and prevents it from twisting out and stripping the bolt. I use it all the time. Also a note about torx that are stripped out. If you use a drill bit that just fits into the stripped out hole and drill straight it will not damage the threads of the hole. you can drill it straight through and then just clean the threads with the proper size tap. I use Never Seize on bolts that I know I'll be taking out again.

I used my MIG to weld scrap hex head bolts to the stubborn torx head bolts for the roll bars.... I just used a propane torch to heat the body bolts to include the window and door hinges. Now it seems like I'm pulling things apart so often that they don't get a chance to freeze up. Yeah I know... late addition to this thread.
