Has anyone replaced their under tray bolts with dzus fasteners? Particularly the kits found on eBay?

When I took mine off last year I used a nut driver bit in a cordless drill to get the panel off. Dzus fasteners wouldn't have been any quicker.

I do recommend stainless hardware if you don't already have it.

I replaced mine but made my own kit maybe 8 yrs ago. Makes it breeze to remove. It holds tight and I dont get any rattles. I used 2 different lengths. I've lost maybe 2 in 8yrs and damaged (bent) a couple of the receptacles when it didnt "catch" right.

I too, use a cordless nut driver. Makes it super fast to remove. To make it even quicker to access, I use a jackhelper to lift the rear and slide it onto rhino ramps. From there, it's a breeze with my cordless driver to remove the bolts.

My Exige had the replacement kit installed by the previous owner. Works well except that two of them need to be longer to latch. I have not found any vendors willing to sell them in lot sizes smaller than 1000.
