I just had a flash - but don't know if the idea is any good or not.
How about a tiny piece of double stick carpet tape on the hinge -
align the door carefully and then press hard enough for the tape to
stick really well. Carefully open the door and drill with a Vix bit.
Once that's done, remove the tape, reposition the door, and drive the
