Some dimensional help needed.
« on: February 10, 2017, 10:57:25 AM »
I have been working on a wood templet from which I will cut my new sill plates.  I have completed the template and I am now looking to confirm my work before cutting the hardwood for the Sills.  Since the Sill member is bolted to the frame in 7 places on both sides I am very confident that my measurements are dead on accurate.  As a quick check I was wondering if someone with a 29U 4 Door sedan could provide the following rear body section width measurement.

I am looking for a ballpark measurement as a check:  From the right bottom edge of the rear door support member steel cap, at the floor to the left side.  See pictures for clarity.  Both rear doors would have to be open so you can measure from outside edge to outside edge.

 

Many Thanks in Advance,  Chet...

Thanks John, I seem to be dead nuts at 52.5"

It looks like the templet is correct.  Will start on the actual sills today.  Weather permitting.

Thanks Chet...
