Crappy Plastic Body Fasteners - any decent replacements??

Took off body panels to paint, undercoat, access fuel tank, etc. Absolutely HATE the fake screw plastic fasteners they use to hold everything together - broke most of them because I couldn't get them to screw out. Does anyone know of a decent replacement for these crappy things??

They make aftermarket ones.. but if you just buy the factory crappy ones in bulk, then you can just plan on throwing them out annyway..

autobodytoolmart.com is probably the cheapest..

ive bought some off ebay, they look like the stock ones but they are alot better, the screw doesnt strip as easy and they last longer.

I usually don't try to unscrew them. Just pop the screw part out with the edge of my pocket knife, then lift the whole fastner out.

X2....I went this route and got the S/S allen head bolts. Much nicer to look at and they won't crap out on ya either.

I got mine from Advance Auto Parts. $2.99 for a box of 10. They work great.
I looked in the nylon fasteners.

Thanks for all of the responses. Love the look of the billet ones, but not sure I want to sink that much into them. I'll give the cheaper ones a try first and if I am still not happy, I might go that route.

Hopefully once I get it put back together I won't have to remove them too many more times...

There always seems to be one reason or another for the need to take off a panel or something with the rivots attached.
I heard that you could find similar rivits at Checkers or other auto parts stores. I haven't checked myself though.

I broke most of them the first time I took them out also, but I started putting upward pressure on the screw, not the washer and was able to get them out without dammage. I use a very small flat blade screwdriver. Sometimes you have too use a screwdriver on both sides. Hope this helps......later.......mark

My local auto paint shop has them in bulk. 25 in a box for about $7.00.
Exact same as Yamaha's.

That looks very cool. Much easier to swallow than the billit ones.
I'm getting these.
