    Stripped Rear S/C Bolt Head

    Ok guys, I took on a job for a guy to take out his S/C but it seems someone already tried in the past and failed. He is the 2nd owner so who knows what happened. After removing all the hoses, I go to remove the back bolt and the head is stripped . I removed the exhaust to give me more room but there is nothing to bite onto. Someone really !$#!%* it up. So what are my options? My initial thought is to somehow grind the head off with maybe 20 grinding wheels with a Dremel but there is not much room and S.S. is pretty hard metal. My 2nd idea is to cut it off but I think I would get into some of the material on the bracket vs the actual head. 3rd thought is to cut between the S/C and the bracket but this too would leave a gap of missing material. HELP !!
