8 track player case position

As I near the end of my projects, it's time to get the 8 track player case installed. I haven't found any information on where the mounting holes should be located under the dash. I have several holes that exist, but none that relate to this case. I'm guessing "centered" on the radio above, but I know there must be a template or instructions for the holes somewhere, since AC cars had special length ductwork that installed on either side of the case. Can anyone tell me where the mount holes should be drilled?

I have the information about where it is mounted but I assume Fred has taken care of you.

Trying to upload a photo from my phone but it is not cooperating. I can text a picture of the instructions to anyone that needs it.

So when installing the player itís actially to the right of center in reference to the radio. Makes more sense when seeing it with the shifter, and that lines it up for the strap that attaches to the heater box.

If you got ahold of the correct factory trimmed lower ac panel (if the car has ac) then it would be easy to position, too
