1 cut a piece of alum sheet .063 1.5 inches wide x 1 inch longer than hole pattern.
2 Use one of your kick panels and make a template with three rows of holes.
There are a couple of ways to do it, you can either use a transfer punch but depending how good you are with it your holes could be off. You can also layout the pattern on the piece of alum. That's what I did and that's why my holes are straight and evenly spaced.
I made a .063 aluminum drill temp. I layed out three rows of holes and used .098 Clecos to move the template around. Took my time, used a drill press as much as I could and a hand drill for the rest. Sharp drill bit and slow to med speed. If you drill slow you get the spirly chaffings.
You have to be gentle with the drill temp because you will be drilling over 2,000 holes.
You will have to measure your first two holes to pin your temp on your new kick panel. I made a paper pattern to position the hole pattern so I could drill the first two holes.
Tip, USE TAPE TO COVER HOLES YOU DON'T WANT TO DRILL! Remember the holes are evenly spaced X & Y so you can turn your temp in different directions.
A quick glance and mine look OEM but look closer. Look at the holes on stiffening rib and compare it to an original. Not even close but who looks that close?
Anyway, bottom line, you won't get straight or even spaced holes unless you make a drill temp.
