I mostly try to use components or sockets with turned pins to go from
top to bottom.

I've used that method, but found that using an L shaped piece of PCB
result in much better aligned PCB's. Just stick both films aligned to
the L shaped PCB. Put the PCB in the middle, expose it, flip it over,
expose it again and you're ready to develop it. Developing a double
sided PCB is another problem. I use small PVC standoffs/clips which
prevent scratching the photo resist layer when the tray is rocked.
