Hello,

Can anyone give me the dimensions for the panel behind the seats on an S3?
Here is a photo I found here. Suggestions are welcome. With thanks.

Mike,

You didn't mention whether DHC or FHC and they are totally different. I think I kept the one I removed from my S3-SS DHC many years ago to use for a pattern. But in the USA, I couldn't find a piece longer than 6 or 8 ft and what ever that length was, the pattern was a few inches too long. I am restoring my pre-airflow FHC presently and I can take measurement of it when I get to Florida later this month, if that is what you need.
