    nice that they put tabs for safety wire near the oil plug/filter, oil cap and dipstick. :152:
    However, the oil drain plug needs an allen wrench to remove, hence little area to drill!
    Dealer said they changed the oil just before I bought it, BUT, there is no oil at all around the drain plug!  fawkers.  guess i'll do that too

    the oil drain plug is removed with an allen wrench, so is impossible to drill.  wonderfully helpful dealer in greensboro, north carolina had a filter drain plug washer and a drain plug that uses a regular socket.  drilled it out for me.  might make that track day tomorrow after all!

    about those pesky horrible philips head screw type push rivets!  any engineer that selected them should be flogged. 
    the best way to extricate them is to puncture the center from an angle and pry it out.  then throw them away!

    I found that a perfect replacement: Dorman 961-359D Chrysler GM Multi-location push rivets.
    The center simply presses in and it leaves a nice little space to insert a screw driver to readily pop it out.
    what the brit engineers should have used!

    And surprisingly, the bodywork went on easily without a hitch!

    Do you mean the plastic screws with anchors that hold the front inner valences by the radiator?  These are really no good.  You can turn and turn them (with light pressure) and they won't come out.  You have to put a thin flat object or small knife under the flange of the head of the screw and slightly wedge it up while turning counter clockwise to get the screw to catch in the "threads" of the anchor.  Then, when the screw is about 1/4 inch out you can pull out the anchor.               

    Better versions are available at an auto supply.

    I removed these screws by inserting a Parker screw and then pulling them out. :028:
