Stuck bolt removal

Hello All:

I think I pretty much know what everyone is going to say about this but I thought I would post and see.

So I have a fiberglas windshield frame and I was trying to get the hardware off to replace it and paint. Simple task ...not.....I am having a huge amount of trouble with the bolts. The first problem is that they are flat headed sloted bolts which are worse than torx for getting a good hold on. I broke one off and then drilled out the bolt and tried to get it out with an easyout but the nut spun inside the fiberglas. So now I am screwed and I don't know how I am going to fix that. I guess some bondo but I don't know if that will hold???? And i still need to work on the others. Maybe today is a new day and they will coperate
