Location on fender to install JDM Side Markers

Does anyone know where I could find the resource to help me install the JDM side markers in the exact location, or as close to it as possible. I would like to have some kind of template and not have to eyeball it. My friend's shop is installing them, TNT AutoBody.

This thread is only for help on where to install, not an opinion thread on JDM lights, or location of installation, opinions or anything else. If you do not have any suggestions, please do not post.

Thank you kindly in advance

I would say right where the Wheel cut is highest, use that as the hight, then just center it.

If that makes sense.

Idk how to explain it and I lack photo shop skills.

BTW, change your attitide, telling people NOT to post certain thinks will make them post and give you a "jerk" rep. Just saying..


I think they will look sick btw, if you got Clear covers and AMBER led bulb in there.

Thanks, I think I am gonna have to eye-ball it, but Im not sure it may look bad anyway with that. They are the clear ones with the orange bulb.

Thanks for your concern on my attitude, but I dont have an attitude... yet. I had to put up that because in the past, several times on this forum, I will ask a specific question and my original question doenst get answered, instead I get cyber-flamed by people and their opinion on anything from my choice of leather cleaning supply to my favorite cheese. I am just looking for some very specific help and that's it. I only have 6 days so I am trying to be as prepared as I can. Thanks for the feedback though.

Update: Here is the light itself, the true NISSAN part. I dig it:

Doesnt seem like it should be too hard to figure out. Get a side shot of a car w/side marker and scale it out.

Finally got it done today at my buddy's shop, TNT Auto Body. He build some of the best cars I've seen, quite a few are Infiniti's too. We got lucky too because a customer's 300ZX had the same side markers installed so we were able to simply trace his cutouts for my install. All in all it turned out really good and I wired them up to stay on and blink with the turn signal. Pics below:
