Rusty: those doors haven't been sold for a few years now, and I'm not familiar with them. But some of our customer support team has been around for a long time and should be able to help you.

(seriously: the manager of customer support has been at Bestop for 25 years or so.)

I had the same problem with mine, as well. I ended up using a slightly bigger bolt (I will see if I can find the size) and it worked perfect. The only real issue I have with these doors is the metal used for the exterior handles is junk. I wish they used the same size handles as the OEM full doors, so I could swap them out. Otherwise these door are pretty sweet.

1/4 X 20 Tap

FYI--After talked with a couple of guys, figured out doors inserts were not tapped, so measured threadsize of mirror screws (1/4X20) and tapped out the door inserts. Took about 10 minutes and had mirrors installed in 15 more minutes. Look geat and fit was fine.
