Looking for a couple of 300TD measurements

I'm looking for a few measurements to help me with my repairs. I need to know the width of the hatch opening at a couple of places so that I can get the quarter panel installed in the right place.

Ideally:

*At the bottom
*At the striker (the one on the side)
*At the window line

Thanks,
Tad

I took the measurements on my wagon.
*At the bottom=54"
*At the striker=51-11/16"
*At the window line=52" (acutally measured at the contour curve that runs the length of the car.

The three bottom photos are the points where I measured. The car need a bath severely, so you'll have to ignore the dirt.

nice china blue wagon! That's the same as my two wagons. The 80 is now happy with the new owner, it has the bamboo interior, but my 82 is also dark blue interior.

Cool we have twins. I have yet to see one in person. I have seen photos of them. And they are the same year. You have any photos?

older pics- then it was outfitted with stock front springs, now it's got non turbo wagon springs and a smaller spring cap- dropping the front about 2 inches. Now I have unpainted bundts and euro lights -soon to have flat face rims and a euro bumper in front.

Nice. I haven't done much in the way of modifications. Just making her happy again, by fixing the broken and worn out stuff. Too bad we aren't closer together. It would be cool to have a photo of the two next to each other. Mirror image.

Thanks for the measurements. Need any parts for the wagon? I figure your time is something, and I have a couple of parts cars.
