Installing 1959 front and rear teardrop marker lights

I want to install the 5 amber front and 5 red rear teardrop marker lights on my 1959 Traveller and would very much like to make sure they will be located and oriented time correctly.
Is there any detailed instruction available? And if not, does anybody have a good photo from which I could work?
Any input would be very much appreciated!

Jim,
I cannot picture five tear drops at either end of a 59....or any other. Is that three up high and two at the sides? Take a look at the pictures available here and see if something is close to what you need.

Thanks! Forgot about that one...
Just a glance and I found this picture:

You might be right, maybe there ought to be just three marker lights there...

Thanks Bob!
No, I don't live in that windmill. It's near where we live and I thought it would be suitable for my friends in America.
