    Hey every one! I’m using this “Tapatalk” app and was sure that I turned my notifications on, but nope

    So I used something similar to the awesome tool you made. All I did was shave down the Phillips bit the attached it to a small vice grip. That worked.

    But now I can’t attach the new sweeps because the holes didn’t line up so I have to self tap them in.

    the bottom of my window is resting on the base of the door.

    how much window is still in the way.

    I’m guessing , I’m just gonna have to take the window out completely to get this done right. Because what’s the point in installing these new sweeps if only MORE rain will fall through

    Oh, another thing I forgot to mention, I did loosen up the two top window felts to give me more room initially.
