I replaced the window gasket on my 63 quarter window.
In trying to tighten the final screw (1 of 2), I twisted it right off level with the frame. I drilled it out and I used a 10/32 tap.

The thread inside the hole are not sharp enough to hold a 10/32 screw.

Any ideas? A couple small spot welds on either side? The frame is chrome though.

Thanks

screw

A couple of easy hacks are one use a toothpick , it will allow it to tighten right up. Another is very small strands of wire put in hole and then add screw.
