Murphs Screw Kit.     while I have to say my 6pot calipers are my favorite mod, and there are a lot of other greats mods I brag about, murphs screw kit is definately the uusung hero's on this Connie. When I first got it 3+ years ago and with only 5K miles on it, many of the stock screws where already stripped. The belly pan was missing a one of them fairing u-nuts, etc.    Since installing Murphs Screw Kits ( yes I have all of them, 6 or 7 kits total ) I have had the plasic off this thing so many times I couldnt count them all. Not a single problem with these. None lost, none stripped, none rusty or crappy looking, etc. These things just keep going and going. I would have probably gone through a ton of stock screws and been pissed off more than once at them. These things just keep going their job. Time after time.

I'll agree with the screw kit... A++     But then all of the products that Gary sells are first rate! Or he will not sell them... :)  He and his products do the Connie World a GREAT FAVOR.    But again the screw kits are GREAT.    Yuma,      Summer in Yuma is not hell, but hell is a local call :-)  2006 Connie http://community.webshots.com/user/Lateck?vhost=community

+1 on the screw kits, but let us not forget the pure aesthetic value that goes along with that ease of use. They give my bodywork a nice military aircraft look. I love mine and the side cover knobs too (and heated grips... and fuse block... and valve adju
