Unhappy Stupid mistake

Note: Forgive me for being a complete newb/idiot...So I recently replaced my front passenger side wheel hub assembly. When I mounted the caliper back onto the steering knuckle I failed to use threadlock and a week later one of my bolts flew off and the caliper detached on on side. Luckily I was going slow enough that I was able to stop without getting into a wreck. So...being the smart guy that I am, I go out and get a new bolt and some threadlock. But not just ANY threadlock.... red high temp LocTite... I soak that Damn bolt and put everything back together again. Now I realize that my rotor is "warped" and needs to be replaced. I do some research about read LocTite and to my dismay I find that I will now need to use a torch to heat the bolt to 500 degrees if I ever plan on getting it off.

How screwed am I? Is it possible that heating it with a torch will be easy and it will pop right off with a pry bar, or this about to be an expensive disaster I will really regret?

Haha, it'll put up a fight. However, you just recently had all of the fasteners off so you're not fighting corrosion.

Closed end wrench and a 3 or 5 pound hammer. Works darn near every time lol. The only time it didn't work I put a jack stand under the wrench and lowered the truck. That one kinda takes two people so the wrench doesn't slip off.

You may be fine with just an impact gun. I use red loctite on some of my side-x-side utv parts and my impact works. Sometimes it might be a combination of heat, and then the impact will spin it right off. Not a big deal.

I do brakes pretty regularly and don't use loctite when putting them back together and have never had a caliper bolt come out. However, I also torque them down pretty good with my air ratchet. As far as getting it loose a ratchet, socket, and a decent sized piece of metal pipe should get the job done. I've never had to bust out the torch to get a caliper bolt off.
