My "buddy" was trying to help me out with a break job but a stripped lugnut got in his way and he felt he had to show it what-for. He gave up before the nut and now not only am I running with front breaks only if I get a flat in the back, I'll be walk'n.
I've done some searching and have found all kinds of great tips for removing stripped lugnuts but haven't seen any posts that quite match my issue.
The wheel is already dinged to hell and my spare wheel is in great shape so I'm not super worried about damaging the wheel but don't want to break anything else.
My plan is to heat up the mashed lug with a heat gun... add some lube and take a metal drill bit to the mashed lug and work it till it is free.
That said, I'm posting to get advice and any guidance before I get started and also to burn my buddy
Pic to follow.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
