It would have been interesting to compare it to the candle wax onto warm 
parts trick.  The one time I ended up trying that, I almost busted my 
knuckles over-pushing a wrench on a formerly seized tie rod.  I didn't 
expect it to come off that easy. 

I will give the acetone-atf mix a try, though.  Never a shortage of 
stuck bolts.
