Default Which Cowling Hinge

Guys: Planning to use the Van's supplied hinges to attach my cowling. Unfortunately, I've become confused as to which hinge, 1/8"/large or .090/small, is installed where.

Please confirm my thought that the larger hinge (1/8") is used at the firewall to the cowling aft attach edge, upper and lower, and the smaller hinge is used to join the cowling halves (upper to lower).

I do understand about using the .090 steel pins in the large hinge.

Its got to be my brain catching up to my age.

Many Thanks,
