Im concerned that my tape line on the fastback windshield may be off by 1/32" but less than 1/16".
So when I measure 12" from my groove it will measure 12' but actually be off slightly.
What is the tolerance for error?
How can I know im measuring from exactly the same point on both roofs?
Im considering running a string from left to right on the lower part of the coupe pillars then taking a 3 measurement from the string to the inside of where the windshield sits.
Had to replace two A pillars on a 66 cv and used two rust free cpe Pillars bought from
a person on V-M few years back.
Before any cutting, trimmed a manila folder to fit w/s opening. Put the trimmed
piece into the w/s opening and traced it. Turned the piece over and traced the other
So.....when installing the pillars, used the folder as a guide. I had the cvt piece and cut it about 5" from top. Fitted the "new" pillars to butt to the cvt top piece. I made bonding
strips to insure strength. Prior to this, also had measured the top opening. So using the
folder piece, was sure of accuracy.
Breaking off the cpe drip rails was cake and they became cvt pieces.
