Is somewhere there a big pile of lost fasteners?

I just had to pay $3 plus frt for a DISA screw with at t40 head. Heard mine bounce around on its trip to nowhere.
My impressive array of magnets no luck.

Yes the foam sound insulation on top of the stiffen plate works better than magnets

LOL! I dropped first the screw then, as I was trying to fish one handed for it, the cam position sensor. Had to buy another. Then I dropped the stupid bit. My skinny buddy came over and dropped the body shield and I found all my stuff plus a lot left by some other klutz before me.
Then there was the hoard in the Bad Boy Outlaw...........

Yeah, noticed my recently replace throttle body boot seemed a little crooked. EZ tighten, right? Crap, canít get anything on it so letís take the DISA off to get at it. Oops, rattle,rattle. Magnet fishing, three different types. Nothing.
