yeah, i don't know that they will stay latched if it shakes too much or shifts, but they rivets are on solid, and i'll still use the screws, i just don't want to rely on them and the alt strap alone anymore..

like i said, if nothing else, they're cosmetic and add a subtle custom touch..

I'm also putting a dab of locktite on every sheet metal screw because while tearing it down to clean mouse guts off the engine i discovered that i'd lost about 3 of them in the last year and most had rattled loose..
