The reason I ask is because...
The sheetmetal is screwed to the car. My width at the rear is about 1/4" wider than the dimensions given to me. This is because the trunk panel width forced us to push the quarter out a bit. This left a larger than preferred gap in the right quarter to trunk fill panel. It occurred here in order to keep the center of trunk and fill panel lined up.
The glass length from front to back is more or less set by the framework. There wasn't much wiggle room there.
If I did have the glass, wouldn't I need to install the rubber on the glass and take some dimensions of the rubber lacing the flange?
Have you seen problems with the glass varying?
I plan on removing all the sheetmetal to have the car blasted. I can have glass available for the reassembly in case an adjustment needs to be made.

What are your thoughts on welding the factory seams from quarter to rocker and quarter to trunk fill?
To the dimensions offered thank you. They were useful but not entirely what i was looking for. I don't know this for sure, but I presume the sharp edge of the metal would be the critical dimension, not necessarily where it drops in. I say this because I don't know for sure. This is my first go at a project like this.
