both ends of the shower are like this against the wall - if you screw
the wall brackets and then put the silver frame thing on it rips it

No.. offer the complete door and frame with end channels to the space. Then
screw the channels to the wall.
1. mark holes for the ends and drill and plug holes
2....place end channels on frame and lift whole into place
3. screw frames to wall
4 drill and self tap inner door frame to outer end channels
