Stripped windshield screws

My windshield hinges have stripped screws in them but I need to get them out to mount light brackets. Any tips on how to get them out?

The same thing happened to me. I ended up drilling mine out and replacing them with grade 8 bolts. There are backing bolts behind the bolts on the tub and caulk or something over them. I had some rust repair to do while I was there so I pulled my dash when I did it.
