I had the same problem. The thread is actually just cut into the flat metal that is ‘mushroomed’. I drilled the thread out, ground the metal flat and then welded on a pair of high tensile nuts (so next time hopefully the bolt will strip first)

Oops. Good point.

I was picturing my bolts going into welded nuts. Kinda forgot mine's not standard.

I have found that those bolts cross thread very easily. They take a bit of patience to ensure they are starting in easily before tightening with a tool. One of my bolts was partially cross threaded possibly by the dealer and now it takes care to ensure it is not cross threaded before tightening.
