Yes. Yellow daffodils, King Alfreds to be specific....growing in my front yard.

I'm thinking of installing a bud vase on the GS similar to the one found on the VW Bug.

+1 fully agree. And yes I worked on McDonell as well as Boeing planes as technician and engineer for more than a decade, mention that cause not all aircraft specialists are in love with HeliCoil

Well, for the low torque bolts in question it does not play a role if you use HC or TC or whatever ...

OK.... some of you are saying that if the bolt is removed often, the Helicoil can have "problems"..... please explain.

Some think the heli-coil will beck out with the screw, but experience tells this is simply not the case.

The only time I saw this happen was with a stainless screw in a stainless helicoil without any lubricant, a condition the Helicoil documentation will tell you to avoid.
The screw galled and welded itself to the helicoil. This would not have happened had the screw been lubed.
