Rounded Off Bolt Heads?

When attempting to check the differential and tranny fluids of a newly acquired TR6, I found that Emperor Kong (the King's Big Brother!) had tightened the fill plugs.

After rounding off the formerly square corners with every grasping tool in my large repertoire the light came on!

Remembering that I had two new plugs available in my parts inventory, I drilled 11/32" holes horizontally through the problem plug heads (across the flats) inserted a center punch, gave the punch a sharp rap counter-clockwise with a mallet and-success times two!

What a feeling of satisfaction we have when we defeat even one of the small demons we encounter in the care and feeding of our beloved British babies.
