Maybe an optical illusion but the line you have put on doesn't look square to boot lid to me,

If it's the original bootlid, my advice would be not to try and move the holes. Yours may be exactly right and by moving them you could end up copying cars that aren't original. Have a look at a Mk1 Austin S boot badge, you'd never plan to put it at the angle they came out of the factory! If in doubt check out John Parnell's Original Mini Cooper book.
