Anyone have pictures od installing the IRO lower front coil spring replacement towers

I've got a set on the way and haven't found much on the install of said pieces. I'm also trying to decide how I want to weld them in.

Current thoughts are the standard perimeter weld.I'm also considering drilling and tapping a couple holes into the piece so I can run some bolts up from the bottom(ground flush with the piece to not interfere with the spring isolator) to hold them in place for welding and also act as rivets in case for some reason the welds fail and/or drilling a couple holes into the piece and plug/spot welding them down as well. I may also peen or weld the bolt protrusion so the bolts can never come out(chamfer the edges of the threaded hole fo the bolt is a rivet. I've used this technique(peened the end of the bolt) when I don't want to get the welder out, yet want a permanent connection.)
