It never hurts to have spares in stock, especially when they are tuning options.

It's just a 5 min job for all 4, just slot the head and unscrew it.

Or if you have a good 3mm drill, as had been said before drill the head of the screw until it falls down and then remove the rest of the screw with a pair of pliers. This is a much nicer way of getting rid of screws, because making a slot in the screws will almost for sure end up with a slot in your chassis aswell .

No because the screw is 3mm, so the head will fall before you even arrived at the thread. If you're scared about that, you can try to drill a bit and then pull the bulkhead a bit (or any way you can find to put strain on the screw), as you'd have drilled the screw's head, its strength should collapse and the head will fall.

Nope shouldn't do if your careful, the screw head shold fall off a few mm before the drill hits the bulkhead (chassis thickness).
Personally I use a Tungsten Carbide bit to get mine out, it was bloody expensive to get hold of, but worked very well in getting the stripped screws out.

DON'T DRILL THE SCREWS!!!!!

With counter sunck screws in the lower deck, the drill will remove all external parts from the bulkhead... leaving you a bulkhead fit for the bin.

Use a dremel and a cut of tool. I have done it befor, and even slotted my deck alittle, but I can handle a slot in my deck better than the cost of a new bulkhead.

You obviously didn't understand the whole point of drilling the head of the screw, otherwise you wouldn't say that.

THINK before saying what you are sayingo, if you drill a 3mm screw's head with a 3mm drill, what happens when your drill arrives at the end of the head (and start of the threading) ?

The head will fall long before your drill had any chance of going into the bulkhead, and you won't end up with a slot in your chassis.

Make this easy on yourself. Go to you local Sears or hardware store and buy an "easy out" bit. They cost about $3 and don't damage any part of the car. You just put them in a drill and run it in reverse. They dig into the screw and pull it out safely. A good tool to have in your box with these types of cars.

This is completely off yopic but I just had to bring this up.

Randy Caster is the Ultimate RCTECH guy. Over 11,393 posts since March 2003? Guys here on the east coast are amazed. Based on my calculation you averaged about 495 posts per month, 16 posts per day. That's a lot of typing.
