28 roadster measurements
by 54velox on Sat, May 03 2008, 2:17 am

I really need some help with some measurements. I'm in the process of joining the cowl and sills (one piece) to the rear section of my 28 glass roadster. I need the measurements across the body at the back of the doors from outside to outside and also from outside to outside at the to of the rear section as per the attached pic (not my body).

I'd really appreciate any help you have to offer.
