    Anyone got any pics of how their body panels are mounted to the tubing?

    It needs to be removable...

    Sounds like Dzus fasteners would do what you want.

    Mine came with Stainless Steel panhead bolts that require an allen wrench s opposed to a phillips screwdriver.

    The tabs are "trick tabs" and you have a nut on the backside of the tab that can be hard to reach during installation or removal.

    One good thing is the panels are tight.

    I did not want to cut and grind and replace all those tabs but I would choose Dzus fasteners for ease of body panel removal.

    The SS screw in fastners suck! you get a little mud on them and try to remove them and they gall. They then must be cut off and the tab replaced. Or if your in the middle of a race, you just rip the whole assymbly off and leave it next to the track. One of the worst things we ever did to the race truck. Dzus all the way!

    Dzus or Camloc quarter turn fasteners definitely make life easier.
