I think there is a template that some made up and posted a while ago
http://www.ultimates...=6 lug template
Here ya go, hope that helps.
Here is the answer to the question about seating your studs properly:
You don't want to countersink them. Spotfacing is the optimum approach. It will maintain a flat surface for the studs to sit into.

What is spotfacing? I called the machine shop and told him that spotfacing would be the best way, but he doesn't know what that means. Neither do I.
SPOT-FACING A machining process in which the area around a hole is milled to smooth, flat surface by application of a rotating tool with cutting edges on its end or face.
... look where the head of the stud mates to the back of your hub. It's not a flat surface... you mill it down to a flat surface.

the template makes me nervous, how can you center it on the wheel? you gotta use a wheel as your template. but you cant just take a drill bit that fits in the hole and hope its centered either.
i had to build a special tool to center/drill them
send them to me. do you have rear discs? if so, its alot easier.
