Need the measurement in red with the question mark. It is [u]bottom</u> edge (marked in red)of the top of the opening of the glove box to the floor. Let me know if it is to the carpeting, or is to the fiberglass floor.

Thanks in advance for your help.



1963 Studebaker Avanti: LS1 motor and T-56 transmission have been moved rearward, set up as a two seat coupe with independent rear suspension.

Jim, thanks for the dimension. I probably should have just emailed you to save time.:D

Would you estimate the carpeting and padding to be 1/2" thick, or another value that I should add to it to reach the fiberglass floor?

I'm at 22 3/4 to the fiberglass floor, and I appear just by visual observation of the mounting line at windshield to be falling away in the vicinity of 3/4" to 1" down. By the way, my dash is just suspended there with some pressboard, simulating the steel brace that goes underneath the bottom of the dash.


If you don't mind. PM me with your phone number, I've got some questions on your dxf. files.

I'd say 1/2" to 3/4" for the carpet and pad.
