I basically masked the whole front half of the truck off with blue painters tape, maked it out with a tape measure, made some eyeball adjustments, used a unibit to drill them, then put them on with self tappers.

the kit i got is self sealing. it rained hard last night and they did not leak. i may later after i get some silicone and go around the screws and where the wire goes into the truck. i put some stuff arounf the wire to keep it from rubbing the sharp metal so it doesnt short out
