WeatherStrip screws, and maybe alternatives?

Postby Tuga2112 » Sat 26.05.2018, 11:05

When i did my weatherstrips last week. i ended up needing to drill new holes as i ducked up the alignment of the strips and the previous holes didnt aligh.
all i did to fix it was drill new holes using a long HSS 3.0 drill bit. and self tapping screws.

now.. although it holds fine. i dont really like the solution. Im a big fan of rivnuts (specially for holding the doorcards) but in that location is impossible to put them.
so id like to know what other solutions can you guys think of that would allow me to use machine screws in there instead of self tapping ones ?

Bump ?

the yellow car driver side strip does need some attention. i was holding on for suggestions before tackling it.
