Default Need help, I can't set up my Roland TD-7 left-handed

Hey all. I searched around and couldn't find a thread like this, please forgive me if this is a repeat.

I just bought a Roland TD-7 kit from a guy online, and it works great so far. I paid $800 for it, and I think it wasn't a steal but definitely worth my money. Anyway, the problem is it's set up for a righty, and I wanted to swap it to a left-handed setup. I took all the pads off the frame, and now I can't seem to get everything onto the frame like I want it. I don't have a picture available, but it looks just like this :



(random image taken from google image search to explain what kind of frame I have)

Can anyone provide me with a picture or a basic MS paint diagram or something to help me set this up lefty? I would greatly appreciate it; I can't play at all after having taken it apart. I definitely tried to set it up with the hi-hat, snare, and drum brain on the right and the ride on the left but now everything feels wrong and I can't seem to adjust the pads to a comfortable distance from each other (still quite a newbie drummer).

Without stating the obvious, surely it's just a matter of mirror imaging how it was in the first place??

I don't know if you are used to playing an acoustic kit but it's going to feel a lot different.

I find that. I can never get truly comfy on an electric kit. I'm 6"6 and use rock sizes on my acoustic kit so it always feels really small to me when i get behind my roland.

I suppose the problem is I'm not sure how to set this up at all. I didn't get any instructions or anything when I bought it, and I've never even owned an electric set before (or any kind of drums)
