Mounted the brake reservoir to the firewall

The drawing only shows a measurement for the center line of the brake reservoir on the firewall. You have to figure out where the bolt holes go. Also the instructions don't mention anything about drilling the hole in the firewall for the line that goes from the back side of the firewall into the brake reservoir . So I grabbed my trusty hole-size-figure-outer and determined that the hole for the brake reservoir is 1/2 inch. So I eyeballed where that hole should go by lining up the two top holes in the brake reservoir with the top row of rivets in the firewall angle brace behind the firewall. After drilling the 1/2 inch hole for the brake line, I stuck the brake reservoir in the hole and used the top 2 holes in the brake reservoir as a guide to drill the bolt holes.
