NEED A FEW MEASUREMENTS PLEASE
#1
Guy's if possible I need a few measurements inside the passenger door jamb to quarter panel body lines..A few different cars would be great. I had made a comment on a post that don't be afraid to some times cut out or redo previous work..well here's an example. When I had my friend here helping us on the rear of the car in his rush to get the right side quarter welded he never put the rubber bumpers on the door to check the fit of the door to the quarter..(this is why you use sheet metal screws first on a panel BEFORE you weld it & I asked him 3 times you sure it fits?) Guess it's my fault for not checking..So without the bumpers he lined up the door & the quarter & now with the rubber bumpers the quarter sits in a good 1/4" (He's a body guy with 20 years expirence?) I have the welds drilled out & know where the quarter needs to go..Just be nice to have a few measurements too. Just measure as per the pics it's the body lines from the door jamb to the quarter edge..Would be a good thing to wiki for anyone replacing a quarter...Thanks!

Hey Scott,
I got 3" for pic #1 .... 1 3/8" for pics #2. For pic #2, I put the tape measure flush against the flat part of the body and not near the curve to tip of body line and drew a line across to fill in the gap from panel to tape measure to get the 1 3/8 measurement. Pic #3 I got 1 15/16" and measured the same way as pic #2

Did the measurements on the passenger side of the 1972 and drivers side of the 1971 and got same measurements for pics 1 2 and 3.

are all tape measures alike? LOL! May need to send you my cheap ars tape measure if you want exact measurements, but hopefully this will help you get in the ball park and get the ole beast back on the road again.

Got roughly 1 3/8" for pics 2 and 3 above. Been awhile since I had the doors on, but I seem to remember them fitting OK.

Hello Scott!!... Well... i did my homework and here are the results...
First of all... i´ll go with the upper measurement, i have the quarter window on so i choose to measure from the molding, through the screw hole, to the inner there.. you´ll see how i did that in the pic... That measurement is 98 milimiters (yes, i use metric system here, but i think is most acurate too)... In inches, it is 3,86"

The second measurement, the middle one is 33 milimiters, as 1,3" and in this one, i try to do the measure perfectly horizontal, paralell to the floor i can say...

The last measurement, the bottom one is the same, i did as paralell to the floor as i could and it was 50 milimiters, as 1,97"

Hope it helps Scott... here are the pics!
