I have the CZ-471.  Tristao made a nice diagram of the plywood template that 
you laid on top of the forms.  I do not have the 454 diagram so maybe Tony 
can send or e-mail it to you.

Make sure you have threads on the top of each 3' mounting rod.  The bottom 
flanges bolt to the rods.
I have moved the tower four times and Lou Tristao
said for me to get galvanized 1" universal bolt.  You need the HD version 
usually available form a bolt and screw warehouse.  I got a local hardware 
store to order the rods for me.  I cut them off at 48" the last time with 
the final 12" bent at a foundry.  These are still in my base now since 1979 
at this location.

The original rods were black steel with a bend for the last 6"  Lou advised 
that was Ok for the 54 foot tower but he was recommending 12" for my 71 

Good luck with the tower its a nice one.
