Default how do you mount a painted body?

typically ill cut my body post holes and wheel areas out prior to having it painted. or at least ill trace the lines/holes with a perm marker on the outside wrap so i know where to cut.

i just bought a new body and it arrived today and i have to figure out how to cut the post holes.
the wheels i can figure out. how do you guys do it?

Put some black grease over the body posts, then lower the body over the posts keeping it aligned with the wheels. Black grease will mark the spots where body holes should be...

Hi the way I do it if I have already painted it is you put the body on where you want it then get a hand held light and shine it from below the chassie and the body post will come up as a shadow and then mark it from the top with a permanent marker and your done:-)there are tools on market like team Titan body locating mounts that are good to but a light is as good as it gets.

There are little metal cones you available you put on your post and when you center your body press down to make the impression.
