Well, your going to wish you asked that question before the car was painted…
The door should have threaded nut-serts.
They can still be added.

I was in same situation, just used SS screws with washer and nut on back.
They only used nutserts from factory because it was easier.

Use the nutserts. They are easy to install and if you need to take off a mirror for whatever reason you don't have to get inside the door.

Here’s a handy kit that includes a installation “tool”. I used it and it worked well.

Ace hardware has the same installation tool as the one in the ebag link, AND it's only about $3.00 or less !

No, they are different. The originals fit in the recess better than hard wear store china stuff and the philips slot is a little different.
