Engieneered bolt problem (seat anchor)
The previous owner of my TJ for some reason only known to them has hacksawed through two bolts on the rear seat bracket:facepalm:. Now these suckers are tough - Ive snapped three drill bits trying to get a screw removal set into them. Theyre stamped M8.9 on the top.

Any ideas on how to get the thread sections out of the cab and anyone got a spare two bolts I could buy/long term international loan?

I would suggest that you try using better drill bits, also use some type of cutting/drilling oil and set the drill to a lower speed so that you don't create too much heat while drilling.
