Default need 30-31 roadster measurement

Could someone get me the distance from the top of the quarter panel where it bolts to the panel above the trunk lid down to the top of the sub rail at the rear of the cockpit? Thanks ahead of time.

Thanks MAG , but the measurement I need is inside, behind the seat where the quarter meets the center panel in front of the deck lid. it should be somewhere between 23 3/4 and 25 inches. I am installing the rain gutter to wheel well supports and I can move that flange up and down about 1 1/2 inches. this is the flange that the tack rail set on. Right now i have the distance from the flange down to the top of the sub rail at 24 1/4 but I would like to be sure before I drill holes and rivet the support in. That front support is what holds that distance.

I read your post three times and I am still not sure what you need. Does this photo show the part where you need the measurement?

dudley. I can't get to that exact area where the arrow is pointing. Upholstery inner panel is in the way. But I measure 24" from the bottom edge of the flange (torn area pic. 3) (approxomately 2 " rearward from the hole to left of arrow) to the sub rail.
Hopefully you can project where you need to be from there.
