Installing a double door latch


I'm building a shed, everyone calls it the "Shed Mahal". front door with arched windows, side windows and shutters, and a double side door for getting the tractor in.

What is the best hardware for the fixed portion of the double door? Is there a trick to installing this kind of hardware?

Slide bolts. One going into the floor, one into the framing above the door.
Measure accurately and drill the holes in the correct places.
