Default In need of a measurement

I searched every where but no definite dimension.... I have a 1930 Tudor, I need the front dimension from outside post to outside post at the top of front of car. I cut and replaced the the front header shelf and want to make sure the figment is okay before welding. Thank you...

Yes the doors are on, the windshield hinge is very tight between the pillars, if I can spread the pillars another 1/4 inch or I trim the outside edges of hinge which I would not rather do. This car was hit hard in the past and was repaired half ass, seems a lot of bad bends in front body section.....

Thanks for the tip, I tried your suggestion and the screw holes miss by 1/4 inch, I guess Will have to spread the posts some how.
