Measure everything every way possible, If one is not positioned right its really obvious. I have done 2 sets of cab lights. It helps to have 2 people to line everything up. I use tape to make out the dimensions and then drill the holes. If you want just give me a call and I can stop over and help out.

Lots of measuring and lots of masking tape. I used string and a dry erase marker to get everything layed out and then put the masking tape over it. Make sure you have tape down any where you will be drilling!

Alright Nick. I might be getting ahold of you in a couple of weeks or so. I think I'm just gonna order the kit out of LMC with the clear lights for $90.
