i also fitted my own . there should have been a template with the kit , take youre time in using the hole cutter as gelcoat is brittle if its a fibreglass roof and all will be fine . dont stress if the hole isnt as neat as you want as the actual fitting is far wider than the hole youre drilling . youre biggest worry is getting a dry day ! if youre worried about alignment drill a small pilot hole first and see where it comes into the van as the hole youre going to cut is quite big in comparison hence youve got a bit of leway before finally cutting it out if you want perfection . also be careful of the seal as you insert the shaft , i used a bit of vaseline so not to damage it as its a key part . DONT use graese as it degrades rubber .
