    Default Stripped Bolts...

    I was trying to attach a bracket I had bought for a pair of KC Hilites. To mount them to the windshield and I stripped the bolts on them does anyone have any idea how I can fix this.?

    You are talking about the torx bolts, right? Just get a bolt out kit from sears or your favorite hardware store. You just drill the head out with the appropriate sized bit, then put in the reverse bit, and get it out. Might want to hit it with WD40 or PB blaster first. Just a suggestion.

    Yes ... or you can buy reverse drill bits and it will do the same.
    Just do as mp101v stated and spray them down first.
