Question description

tried to get a bolt off, that was holding my engine cover on (i have a 2008 chevy aveo ls) there are four allen head screws holding my engine cover on. tried putting some coca cola on it, still wasnt budging, well i stripped the head in the process of trying to man handle it off. wasnt coming off no matter how hard anyone tried, a goodyear mechanic who last replaced my distributor wires must of torqued them. anyway, which method would you do? keep in mind its my ENGINE COVER. two options i have in mind is to buy myself an extraction tool, or use some jb weld on the head of the allen key, put it in the allen head hole on the bolt, let it sit for a day, and then try it...and obviously, everyone knows how the extraction tools works. what would you do?
