they have annoyed me for far too long. The stupid plastic, bike side, snaps on the lower fairing glove boxes. They simply don't snap well enough.

It starts like this...

I purchased some 5/8" snaps at the craft store
Purchased some 6-32 by 1" stainless steel bolts, SS washers, and SS wing nuts.

Cut off the old plastic ones on the inside and then pry out with a screwdriver

Replaced with metal

All done it looks the same but they actually snap close with ease.

Cost me under $20 and I'm glad they are fully functional now.

I think I'm going to have to add shit-tard to my vocabulary. I like it.

Thanks MudPuppy. Your usage of the phrase "Very crafty" now has this stuck in my head:
