Windshield Light Bracket

Was putting the new light brackets on the windshield on the Heap today...wouldn't you know it, one screw on either side won't come out, one stripped, one siezed!

So I got out the drill and bits and started at at the one, drilled it out...and the head broke off I walked away and went to the other side. Sprayed it with penetrating spray before I started on the other side, so this should be easy and I had this out about a month ago....SNAP goes the allen key and the end is stuck in the bolt

I'm done for tonightjust a rant!

Had the same thing happen to me about a week ago with a torx bolt on the rear roll bar. B&D screw extraction kit came to the rescue!

If only a screw extractor could have solved my problems....

I'm in the process of getting the wiring done now and almost ready to put it back together!
