    There is a drawing further down the page that lists measurements for that bridge. Have a drill press and a belt sander? Strip the plate, turn it over and sand off the chrome from the back. Use a drill press to drill the holes for the string through from the back. Use a thin epoxy paint on the back after you have drilled the holes to seal the metal. This stuff will do the job too.
