    torch /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif but seriously, if you know someone whos good with a torch they can blow the head off the bolt and if its a fixed nut burn it off too. Then put the nut in the hard to get spot and run a bolt through from the outside, Im just suggesting this and have no idea whether it will work in you application or not. But it has worked for me in some really tight spots.
