The linked photo is a full scale scan of an original template used to align the mounting holes when installing the trunk light kit in a Honda Pacific Coast (PC800).
You need to find a program that will allow the image to be printed at actual size. Web browsers from Netscape and Microsoft do NOT print at the correct size and I couldn't figure out a way to make them do it; I tried IE 5.5, Netscape 4.7 and Netscape 6.1.
I was able to print correctly using Canon Photo, EZPhoto 2.7, Kodak Imaging for Windows (comes with Windows 95 and 98) and Hotshots 1.5.08. If you find other programs that can be used to print correctly, please let me know and I will add them to this list. Please note that all of these programs are photo editors.
In order to print the image correctly, be sure your printer does NOT have "scale to fit" turned on. Either "print on letter size" without scaling or "print at 100% of original" should work fine.
In order to verify that yours printed correctly, measure the distance between the upper left corner of the left hand image to the upper right hand corner of the right hand image. The distance between them should be 6 and 13/16 inches or 17.3 centimeters. If you get a figure that is more than a hair smaller than this, your image was scaled and you should try again.
Once you have printed this image correctly, you should be able to cut out the left and right hand sections, tape them in place on the upper surface of the inner trunk lid (duck-tail removed) and drill and cut your holes for the Honda lights in the appropriate place.
