Use factory hole here ABS pug was as center point for the drill bit on the hole saw. Using slow speed and drill 1 3/8 hole. Take your time here!

Center punch holes where marked with sharpie or scribe to prevent drill bit from walking. Then drill holes.

Holes should be deburred and painted. Step not shown but do it! You don't want rust do you.

Insert supplied bracket with attached nuts into access hole. Engage threads but do not tighten yet.

Uninstall bolts on door bracket while holding up door with knee or with help. The door is HEAVY so be careful. A second set of hands is highly recommended!!

Reinstall bolts in hinges. Adjust door as needed to latch properly and have correct reveal. Torque door bolts down to 15 Ft-Lb's.
