I can't stand the extractors... In my opinion they are hard to work with sometimes and can mess up stuff more. My method is to use a dremel, slice a horizontal line in the top of the screw and back them out with a flat blade screwdriver. Just me though.

In this situation you can't use a dremel, just like many other times rounded out screws tend to be in hard to get to spots.... If you use a dremel here he would destroy his headlights bezels....

Thats tough... Maybe he could grind down the disc so it has a smaller diameter makin it less likely to screw anything else up? Just a thought... I havent looked at how the bezels are screwed in in a while

And slowly replace everything with phillips or hex heads. That's what's I've been doing. Everytime I work on something that takes torx screws/bolts I replace it with stainless. Makes it much easier down the road.

Snap-On make a great set of reverse drill bits. They drill with your drill in reverse. As you drill, the screw or bolt heats up and will start to back out. They have worked for me every time. Way better then trying to drill with a normal bit then use an easy out.

I put a deer hunting tree stand cushion in my driver's seat, one, because it gives a little more comfort & ,two, because it raises me up off the seat some so i can see over the dash a little better

I also put a "third" seat in the back, of course i don't have anyone sit in it while driving, just while in park. Also you can't sit in it while the top is up because your head hits the tip

Odd....I actually didn't think I did either. It was a few weeks after I bought it before I found one on the hood.
