Good job. Finally, somebody else does it the right way.

How many screws did you end up stripping out? I messed up the tops of 2 of them on the 3rd or 4th time. They're expensive to replace. Like $3 each.

Didn't strip one. Found the right size Torx head and used my drill

Its T20 on the outer ones and T25 on the inners, but the screws are very soft. Dealer keeps like 100 of them in stock at all times.
