Eyeballing is probably fine. My mistake was I didn't consciously eyeball, and then during the drilling the bracket slipped a bit. I didn't realize it until it was too late, making it about 1/8" out of vertical from one side to the other. At $17 to replace the rib, it's worth it to me to not end up with a finished tank that then has a bracket that is impossible to use.
