Hi, has anyone bought and fitted those aftermarket cheap rudder foot controls on eBay . the screw holes are tiny. I would like to know the best way.

I'd have to look at it mate (in the flesh). Southern NSW is a bit far I think though.
Just thought I'd give a response on behalf of the site. It dosn't seem anyone else will. So for what it's worth. Remember, PE boats can be welded. So if you decide to tinker, it's ok if you drill the hole in the wrong spot.
Remember..... you will need axcess inside the hull to tighten the nut on the inside, for both the gas peddles and the rudder itself. If you don't have access you will have to use wellnuts, or self tappers (depending how thick the plastic is)
Good luck anyways.

Adding to the above, try a YouTube search. There are instructions for a lot of different kayak-related things.
Cheers,
