I began the Bestop oversized tire carrier install. Everything was going good (besides having to find some T45 and 50 Torx bits... go to Pep Boys)
So I have my holes drilled, all the hard parts done... just gotta get two of the roll-bar Torx ****s out.. The first one takes a little bit of force, SNAP, then screws out... ok cool...
Second bolt, not so much... I put everything I've got into it, doesn't budge... get a pipe to go around the ratchet, I've got 2.5 feet of leverage, thing still won't budge, screw on the verge of stripping... blast WD-40 on it, try some more, screw strips..
Try to use some bolt extractores, none of them work because of the awckward position b/t the roll bar and lifted edge of body, can't fit the drill in very good..
So now that's stripped and I have empty holes in my tub.. Gonna try the dealership who sponsors my club and see what they can do, if they wanna charge $95,
: anybody got any ideas?
BTW, can't drill through it because of the vital threads, I can't **** those up or I'm looking at a $200 re-thread bill... ggaahhh
