I can't see it in any of the pictures ... do you "dot" those pieces so putting it together isn't as much guess work?

I put dots on if requested by the customer, but if they don't request it then I don't. I found that onmy own rods for some reason even when I have dots I still sight down the guides for whatever reason. Old habits I guess.
