Need measurements for SW side window placement

Hello,

I am going to be adding side windows to my van side and need the following measurements to make sure I get the windows centered properly.

Rear of hardtop to edge of window
Front of hardtop to the edge of window
Bottom edge of hard top to edge of window
Top edge of hard top to edge of window

If possible I would like to get measurements from a couple of 90ís just to make sure I get it in the proper place.

Thanks!

I measured off JimC's truck. 1.5in top and bottom and 6in short side and 7.5in long side IIRC (I can't find the piece of paper I wrote it down on). I am cheating because I bought randy's spare window side as a template. I am going to drill out the rivets and measure the hole from the sliding one to install the fixed glass in both sides off of a fiberglass top.

Here ya go.

When i did mine, i put a nice thick strip of masking tape all around the general area where I was going to cut, then marked it out with a pen (you can draw onto the masking tape easier than the bodywork) and then when you run the jigsaw around to cut the hole, you don't end up scratching the paint either side of the cut (OK, it doesn't matter inside the cut, but the outer edge could show up past the window rim)

Dave -

Edge of window to bottom of rain gutter (rubber strip between to components) = 1.455 in.
Edge of window to top of tub = 1.480 in.
Edge of window to rear = 5.850 in.
Edge of window to front = 7.460 in.


I can drive the 90 over so you can get eyes if you want. Mark

Jamie,

Is the side window you installed a stock factory item or aftermarket?

Ron,

Do you have the side at your house? If so can you measure it for me?

Mark what days / hours are you around? I am in Denver today and will leave Friday night to go back to Fort Collins. I could drive to your place if you are going to be around.

That picture (and measurements) was taken off of a brand spanky new d90 on the dealer forecourt.




.....so expect it to be incorrectly fitted!

Hey Dave - Let me pull Ron's out of the garage and measure it - the window is out, so the measurement will be more precise.

"the window is out, so the measurement will be more precise."

Really? Did it come with a window?

Here are two sides, the size of the hole is of course dependent on which window you are installing. I was distracted by a two-year-old during this process and couldn't complete the job.

Follow-up Post:

Oh, its hard to see. This is a RH side. Right side of the pic is the front.

I am installing fixed windows from a fiberglass top.

I thought the fixed windows in the fiberglass top and the sliders in the SW were the same size

So the area that says 205mm is the RH front and the area that says 50mm is the bottom correct?

Yes, according to what I've seen, these windows are the same size. From talking to LenB, he verified this when he installed solid fiberglass top windows in his side panels.

And yeah, you got the dimensions right. They look consistent with the measurements from others, allowing for the width of the window frame.

Dave-

I'm in Denver with a fiberglass top in pieces if you wanted to borrow the sides to make a template. Let me know.
