Loc-tite the screw/snap fasteners. For some inexplicable reason, Thomas doesn't do that from the factory.

I may not know the answer but I can usually find who does.

The posts you snap onto vibrate loose over time, yeah. I've lost one and fasten the "bra" to the grill with electrical tape on that corner. I agree with using Loctite on them if you can. I just tighten them up once a week or so. I only keep it on Thanksgiving to Easter anyway, so just a few more weeks to go,

I've got them on all of my C2's. I put a small washer and nylon locknut on the backside of all four corners to keep the posts from coming loose. I've found that after a few years the studs start to corrode and the winterfronts don't "snap" on as well, so then it's either replace them or make a slight alteration to the winterfront with a paper hole punch and use zip ties. I liked the system on the FS-65's better!
