    painted my mirrors

    First hic-up happened when I was removing the screw that connected the two pieces of the mirror together allowing it to be adjusted.

    The 1/4" bolt broke at the last half inch or so, tried to remove again with an extractor and ended up popping out the piece that the bolt threads into, couldn't remove w/ vice grips.. super stuck...

    QUESTION:

    Is an epoxy even strong enough to hold tension from the spring? I would attempt using a long nut if the glue would hold, doubt the broken bolts coming out
