Default Factory Roll Bar Location?

I'm installing a Metal Tech Full Profile Cage into my '72 40 and need location measurements of the bolt holes for a factory roll bar on the wheel wells. My vehicle didn't come with a factory roll bar and the rear mounting plates for the cage use the factory bolt holes to correctly position the base plate. If someone could measure the distance of the roll bar bolt holes from the front and side edges on the wheel well and post them up I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Look at the passenger side forward measurement, the top right hole is measured from the inside edge of the quarter panel. In reality, even with an aftermarket roll bar there's really only one way to orient it relative to the fender wells.

Based on the measurements I took from Matt's factory roll bar and Jeff's CAD (Crappy Ass Drawing) :-), I have what I need to position the Metal Tech cage. Thanks Gents!
