Default S&S air filter

Have an S&S air filter and cannot get 2 of the 3 bolts out. Took it off when I first got it and they came out with no problem now because they were on so tight the allen seems to have rounded out. I know I can drill them out but before I do that any cool tools that will work better? A 10 minute job that turns into 2 hours.

Blame it on me

Take a chisel, and dimple across the tops. This will give the allen some purchase on the screw. Then use a pencil torch to heat the screw, and remove it

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way
