    cut a groove in it, use a big flat head that has a square shaft that you can put a wrench on.

    Nailhead Ronnie Life's 2 Short. Live like it.

    For the last couple weeks I've been going at it with the most rounded oil pan bolt known to man. Did not start off its life surrounded but with Chinese socket and a moment with my Makita torque gun. I called Fritz last week or two and had him walk me through the aluminum foil technique. So I went to go buy some, no dice but at least we got foil hahaha. So this Sunday before church I was at it again because it's been like six thousand maybe seven thousand miles since my last change. Well with and a small pipe wrench I got it off. I was so happy. I was at it with that pipe wrench for a good 20 minutes and even thinking about calling it quits and taking it to a shop just to get the Bolt out. Do you know how we guys are, screw the shop. Said a prayer of Jesus and felt so defeated that I gave it one last try and that was the one.
