I wonder how critical that got placaed on the assembly line...were there pilot holes already in the panel? Or was there a jig when they upholstered the panel?

This was in the boxes I received when I bought an AA 157 Ford truck that was used as a moving van in Denver, Colorado.
Pocket had 3 metal backing strips behind the door panel and the assembly was held together with rivets. A couple rivet heads
can be seen in the picture. I basically drilled them out.
