Just remember that water has to flow downhill and seal all seams real well with gutter caulk (butyl).

"More than a Carpenter" covered 90% of what you need to know. One thing to make sure of, when you get to the downspouts, is to crimp and insert the upper piece into the lower piece, then use small sheet metal screws or tec-screws to hold the joints together.

While we're at it, with vinyl gutters how far apart should the support brackets be?
