I spent a lot of time using the factory supplied template when installing a rear antenna on my "60 Ford. After I drilled the holes I went to install the retaining nuts. That is when I noticed that there were two holes located in the top of the rear qt. panel inside support structure to allow clearance for a socket to secure the nuts. It would have been much easier to drill the holes from the bottom. A hole saw the same diameter of the support structure hole could have been inserted and the pilot drill of the hole saw used to drill the hole for the antenna studs making sure not to allow the hole saw damage the sheet metal. You may want to look on the inside of the rear quarter panel for similar holes in the support structure to aid in finding the location of the rear antennas on the Edsel.
