Default RE: Extreme Flight 87" Yak 54 - Build & Fly

Has anyone ever tried nylon screws to hold the cowl on? I'm thinking of trying some 8-32 nylon screws and tap the mounting ears. Hopefully the nylon will have enough give to absorb the vibration and keep the cowl from cracking but still be strong enough to hold it solid. I'm hoping they will stay tight unlike most other screws I have used to hold cowls.

Has anyone tried to fit one in the back of a short bed pickup yet, less wings of course?
