    Things like this I turn the heat up, 3 good hot tacks better than putting loads of heat in slowly and distorting the nut

    And I always stick a bolt in the nut so not to get spatter in the threads oh and the bolt also holds the nut in place

    But make sure there aren't any exposed bolt threads, spatter on those will make it impossible to easily remove the bolt - wrap exposed threads with masking tape
