I've very glad you wrote this: I thought the image provided would be used exactly backwards What a MESS I would have created if I had done it that way!!

Nothing a chunk of brass and a MIG welder couldn't fix.....
(or a mobile welding service if you have no welding capability)

As the drill sergeant said, "I taught you everything you know. I didn't teach you everything I know."

"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so."

The template I saw was 1 template with an arrow pointing to the front of the car and then the same template flipped over for the other side.

I've seen the template you are referring to and it works great to locate the pilot holes as you describe. Some templates are nothing more than a paper printout adhered to in place and some of us just measure, scribe the lines and drill.
