HTOB holes in bell housing

ready to drill 2 holes in my D&D bell housing for my McLeod lines. Before I drill, I was hoping to find some pictures from those that have gone before me. Spent ~ 20 minutes with no good shots of hole locations so posted new topic.

i drilled two holes in mine large enough for grommets to run the braided lines. one above the other on the left side of the bellhousing. the upper goes to the clutch master cylinder and the bleeder out to the bottem of the bellhousing for ease of access to bleed. held in place by a small adel clamp. it seems to work well that way. some like the slave but i think the htob will be entirely satisfactory and is aesthetically more acceptable. real estate is always a concern also.

If you dealt with the daily HTOB misery like a shop like mine does. You would come up with another solution very quickly.
