It's been nearly a year. Re-reading my own post, it says I bent a tab back on the sail panel to make the new tweeters fit. After scuffing the body of the tweeter, I used dabs of epoxy on the tweeter body where it touches the plastic of the sail panel when inserted. Nearly 1 year later and many door closings, it hasn't gotten loose and there's never been any rattles.

The grey plastic is what i scuffed to let the epoxy get a good grip. They key to making them fit is breaking off the correct tab on the sail panel. Let me know if you have any other questions. There's another thread of someone installing the same components and I believed they used duct tape.
