I was working on my car (not the beast) when i came across some stripped bolts when taking the rear wheel hub off, i purchased the CRAFTSMAN® Bolt-Out®/MD 13-piece Damaged Bolt and Nut Remover Set for $40 bucks and they did the trick, the bolts i wanted to move were totally round specially the caliper ones. Just placed the socket over the bolt, hammered it in a little to make it fit more tight and use a wrench to loosen the bolt.

just wanted to share this with fellow members cause i really think this is a must for a DIY and removing rusted stripped bolts.

Nice, thanks for sharing. W
When this happens to me, I weld on a new nut (if there is room) and then put the air gun on it.
