My advise is make sure you dont strip those screws it alot easier when you dont drill it. I also just J&B welded the holes closed cheap and effective.

The reason the screws stripped is because they're designed to not fall out. The threads are pinched on the back. If you flip open the butterfly and cut the exposed threads off the back of the butterflies, the screws will come right out without stripping or shearing.

I figured it was too late to help you (unless you ever do it again), but I figured I'd mention it in case anyone finds this thread in a search.
