Question Dreaded TORX

Hey all,

I was wondering if someone would be able to post a picture of the type of torx screw used in the EF/EL stereo-brackets. I dont get my EL Futura till friday, and i've already bought and installed the adaptor on my old head unit, and i just want to see if i have anything around the house that could be used to remove the Torx screwes i hear oh so much about.

Thanks,

Luke

Re: Dreaded TORX

Goto Dick Smith buy a security torx bit set, they have the cheapest price, and a security tox bit (have the hole in the middle) can be used for standard torx screws as well.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: Dreaded TORX

the torx bit you require is a "T20"
make sure you get the theft proof one with the hole up the guts of it
