screw holes on 58-085

A handy person from Tampa Fl. says:
I just recieved my 58-085 weather strips. The first and last holes line up with the original holes, how ever the other ones do not match up at all plus the holes are to small for the fasteners.
I have 14 of these things to install. I will have to redrill around 8 holes per strip or use small head 3/4" inch self tapping screws to install them.

I'm not certain what screws you're using, but the installation holes in the 58-085 can take a #6 or #8 diameter screw. I would use a 3/16" drill bit to drill into the 58-085 if you need more holes.

The drill size in the door itself will depend on what size screw you are using.
