Well, the measuring to get the hole in the right place takes the time, measuring between the centre point of both front and rear wheel arches, then the dimensions between the outer edge of the shell and where the body post is takes some accuracy
Different sized shells dont help either
Ive never found an easy way to get it all right, just take your time. Anyone else out there got a better way?
as for actually using the reamer, hold it UBER straight on the point you need it and use a small block of wood or something underneath to put the pressure onto, making sure both the shell and wood are flat. The angles are a killer sometimes and make the reamer slip....
