I wrestled a lot with that with the new floor... used the originals and measured 10x and drilled once... looks like you got it pretty good.
Passenger door installed, initial adjustments OK, Part's Monkey Approved:

All of the painted Torx headed bolts I have removed, for safe keeping:

A few reasons for pulling the bolts:
1) I prefer stainless
3) Piss off JeepAddict
4) Most important - the more you try to remove/reinstall painted bolts, the more likely the paint will be chipped off, especially Torx!!!! With all the adjustments needed, the paint on these bolts would be destroyed. Ideally, all of these major adjustments wold be made PRIOR to paint. Prime everything, including hinges. Reassemble and adjust. Final Paint. Final assembly. Live and Learn.
5) I hate Torx bolts with a passion.
That's it for now
