It's always more fun to do things a couple times than to do them right once!

Although it is probably possible to get the alignment of the upper pan to the front cover without a special tool, in the interest of have more complete info on doing this task here is the alignment tool info:

So I am just going to beg for mercy and hope that my Apologia for being wrong is accepted.
