Drilling Engine Mounts

When using those black plastic engine mounts, its difficult to mark where the holes go to drill for the engine mounting bolts/screws, and still have all the holes aligned, and the engine right where you want it. One good way to do this is to have the engine on the mount, in the plane, aligned just how you want it. Then chuck a piece of music wire, 3/32" or so, about 4-5 inches long in your drill, with a rough cut end out, and use this to mark your holes. With just a little pressure, the rough end of the wire will make a visible mark, and even chew a small depression in the plastic, giving you "center punched" marks ensuring proper alignment for drilling.
