Southco fasteners for rear skirts?

Someone on Yahoo pointed to some Southco parts 85-47-101-20 and 85-47-460-20 as replacement parts for the DZUS-style quarter turn fastener & receptable for the rear fender skirts.

Though Southco has a minimum $5000 order requirement, they're quite generous with product samples (as long as you have a business name and a FedEx account to cover shipping :)). So now I have a ten-pack of each, bolts and receptacles. But I also have a few questions...

Has anyone posting to InsightCentral boards used these on their own Insight? If so, how did you remove the original DZUS receptacle and make the Southco on fit? How corrosion resistant are these parts?

Actually, you need long, flexible fingers to get in there. the old clip just slides off (upwards) and the new one goes on in the reverse direction. Just try not to loose the new clip inside a cavity that it doesn't come out of! I think I still have one in there, somewhere...

I've managed to loose one of the clips putting a skirt back on. They are steel so you can easily fish them out with a magnet if you loose one. Better than having one rattle forever.
