[TowerTalk] Adjustments to Tower Base Pier J-Bolts

Just thinking out loud.

Is it necessary to remove the template?  Here's my thought.  Assuming it 
will work, try pushing the template up the bolts with the lower nuts, 
assuming there are nuts below the template, use plenty of lubricant.  If it 
is possible to raise the template up to within 3 or 4 inches of the top of 
the bolts, this should align the bolts for the tower.  Lower the tower down 
on to the bolts, lower the template by backing off the lower nuts.  This 
will result in leaving the template sandwiched between the lower nuts and 
the bottom of the tower.  Don't forget to take off the top nuts before 
lowering the tower or you will need to lift it or buy three more nuts.
