My old stripping fell off. I would like to replace it with a new rubber garage door bottom using sheet metal screws. Has anyone done this before and can u give me step by step advice? I'm not very handy.

What do you need to know Pete(?)?

Sounds like you will need to re drill new holes to suit the new weatherstrip. Self taping screws will be the best bet. Hold the new strip in position, mark the holes, centre punch and then drill them.

As for screw selection, make sure the screws are not too long that they will hit the outside skin of the door. 15-20mm should be more than adequate. As for drill size, pick a bit that is the same size as the middle of the screw. (between the threads)

Thanks

I think I was making this job harder than what it was. So If I redrill new holes to set up a new weather stripping, this will make it possible for me to start setting up my new garage opener.

Unless its identical to the old one, you may aswell redrill the holes, yes.

Perhaps put a drop of paint in the old holes to stop them rusting aswell.
