Get yourself a set of hard star bits.  Find one that's slightly larger than
the hole in the head of the screw, heat the bolt up a little, and hammer the
star bit in.  It'll bite, and you should be able to get the screw out that
way.  Always worked for me :)

Especially if they're hardened bolts. You'll be drillin' till the cows come

Didn't catch what exactly was the issue with your allen heads, stripped?  If
you have the room, you could use a needle nose vise-grip (wonderful little
tool) and that would probably crush/latch onto the head and allow you to
turn it.  Drilling out is tough, as if it isn't a straight drill you'll
still nick the threads.

Still have some new turn signals and other cosmetic stuff for sale. Cheap
for fellow listers.
Anyone have any thoughts on my allen head issues? I'm thinking of drilling
them out? Don't want to mess up the threads...
