Problem: The pins commonly break off the side panels, causing loss of the panel.
Solution: Lower your standards, and be a hack for a change!... Use common drywall screws (trimmed short),, inserted into the stock rubber grommets. Then drill a hole through the body panel, and install the screw that came with it.

Note: If you ever win the lottery and can afford to buy a new side panel, simply remove the drywall inserts, and you're back to stock configuration.

Before and After, trimming of spade-tip


3x Drywall mount; (Upper right screw is different method; goes into drilled/tapped hole, into stock Honda metal mounting stud)

Sure beats losing the cover down the road. I did find a place on the internet that sells a kit to replace those broken pins. When I get back on my laptop later I try and remember to post the link.
