Like the mirrors I glued to my spokes, I used Amazing Goop to glue a couple of tabs and they have never broken.

But if you have a wooden wing, you may want to use Lemon Pledge.

[align=left]Velcro!!! Now wait a minute! There's an idea! How about bolted-on blocks of wood or some such where the rubber grommets are now, faced with velcro.... and the mating velcro glued on the panels where the broken tabs are now......

If I break anymore of the d_mned things, I'm gonna try it!

Very Simple... New models should have the tabs mount on the body of the bike not on the plastic covers....they could be threaded and screwed into the frame.... The covers should have the grommets... Both could then beeasily replaceable and still have the original concept of no external hardware

JMO Sounds like a weiner...

All the panels I had to remove on a Phantom were held in with cross point screws. About 600 to the inch. We had to use speed handles and bits. Speed handle my arse. I think that was the worst plane I had to work on.

A lot of plastic fastners are one time users. That can be a bit of a drag. Dzus is pretty good though.

I thought the F4 was the best fighter of it's time. But then, I was a hydraulic spec and didn't have to take all the panels off, he he.

I was Jets.Could not remove or install an engine with the hydro pumpsinstalled. Had to move the engine a few inches and reach up through a small panel. It was like removing and replacing the carburatoron your car without opening the hood(bonnet). Sucked big time. :P

Use to have the problem in the earlier days of Goldwings that the side cover would blow off easily if you met a truck from the opposite direction and you got hit with a strong enough gush of air.

The value of our lives comes not in what we do or whom we know, but by who we are.
