Hi. Bit of info a few people may not realise.
Most Japanese vehicles are fitted with JIS screws not phillips heads. A phhillips head screw driver will fit but they are made to "cam out" if the applied torque is to much. Usual results in buggering up the screw head. I bought a set of JIS screwdrivers (not easy to find) but what a difference. No more having to push real hard when undoing a tight screw.

Hi. The brand was Vessel Megadora from ebay. They came from the US and approx $53 AUD with shipping. Quite a bit of info on the web about the history of phillips heads, ie phillips, posidrive, jis etc. Interesting reading.
