Cordless screwdriver with Phillip bit

Mr. Victor Longpont hired my services to remove his garage door that had become damaged after a bad rain storm. The door had not been painted for over 30 years, the bottom of the door was damaged by a badly worn door sweep that allowed water into the bottom of the door.
This post shows the four steps on how to remove a damaged garage door.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the door handle plate on the door jamb has been pre-drilled. Fig.2 shows the brass plate has been installed on the door jamb. A cordless screwdriver with a Phillip bit was used to drive in the wood screws into the plate. This door hardware was re-used and was still in good working order.
