Vacuum pod mount dimension

PostPost by: snowyelan » Sun Feb 23, 2020 8:08 pm

Hi All,
Can someone help me with the dimension between the 2 bottom mounting stud holes in the fiberglass for a 69 elan? I have replaced the nose nosecone and failed to record this.

Thanks,

Not sure if this is what you need but on my S4 the stud holes are 100mm inboard from the centre of indicator lamp and 200mm around the curve of the body measured from the lower edge of the bumper recess.

Thanks, I think the only thing I need to finish this is the distance between the 2 studs. Any chance you could measure this?

Thanks

Difficult to measure accurately due to the curvature of the body and probably not necessary anyway but I've got 688mm between the studs .. a fraction over 27"
