I need across the top , across the middle , across the bottom an dia. corner to corner, Mine has been smacked at the bottom of the left side in the wheel well so I'm going to have to rebuild the braces and what ever else it takes to get it back to where it belongs. Any help is appreciated.

I found you use the lid and make it all fit.

My cabriolet quarters were messed up. I was thinking I needed to do measurements and such. In practice I found you put the body together and work it all till it fits nice.

You are brave to push and pull a body based on someone else's measurements without a lid to work with first.

I can pull the 36 1/8 in the middle with a ratchet strap from 36 3/4 . it bounces back when let off. time to start unbolting and adjusting to at least get the back bottom panel to bolt up. Thanks for the numbers

Since you have the opening measurements, maybe these will also be helpful;
I measured my trunk lid, and here's what I've got:

Front to back along the curve of the lid: 30-7/8"
Front to back straight from top of the lid to the bottom edge: 28-1/8"
Width of deck lid: 35-1/2"

Send me a PM or email if you need anything else.

That's about right. My lid is tighter at the top, though; about 1/8".
