The actual bolt I need to remove probably has about 1/2" or so of length in there still, and realistically I need to get the whole thing removed so I can get a tap in there and clean the threads.

The freeze spray is a good idea, the automatic center punch is even better. May be able to get it in there and actually hit the damn burr.

Was also considering getting in there with some propane and heating the surrounding aluminum to see if it'll give.
