How to install rock guard hinges.

Thanks to some help from forum members I have acquired the curved end rock guards and a set of rock guard hinges for my 1988 Excella.

But I realize that I have no idea how to locate the hinges on the trailer. When I hold the rock guards up to position the hinges are folded under the rock guard and I cannot see them or mark the hole locations,

Any suggestions will be appreciated. I am thinking about trying to make some sort of template to mount to the assembled rock guard and hinges and then locate the template.

Not sure this applies, but LoLoHo just installed new rock guards using member GMFL.
Go to about the 6:00 mark for rock guards.

Thanks for taking the time to post the video.

Unfortunately he is installing segment protectors but he calls them rock guards in the video,

Do you mean rock guards for the window or segment protectors for below the window?

Obviously, I didn't know the difference between rock guards and segment protectors. Can I assume rock guards cover windows while segment protectors (a pretentious name) cover the aluminum?

Yes, that is my understanding of the terminology. But usage changes.
