Default '29 Tudor Back Glass Size?

The back glass I removed from my car is so poorly cut there is differences of 1/8" to 1/4" in it's height. I'm replacing it with safety glass as I did for the door windows. I looked on page 250 in the Service Bulletins and found the dimensions but because the dimensions they have for the door windows are incorrect I'm wondering if the rear glass is also incorrect. Craig Lewis posted a page from the NAGS listing that has all the window dimensions listed but because of the image is so small I can't decipher the sizes noted. Does anyone have a larger copy they can post or just post the sizes for the back glass and maybe the quarter windows also???
I really appreciate any input.

Default Re: '29 Tudor Back Glass Size?

If you send me your email I'll send the pic direct.
From the NAGS chart...29 Tudor
Door 26 3/4 x 16 1/8
Quarter 30 9/16 x 16 1/8

The Back glass doesn't show a true size...they only give us the block size so consider making your glazier a pattern that fits the hole snuggly (with your U channel seal around it and the corners in place)
Corrogated cardboard from a good heavy box works OK.

related facts...
1) Dry corrogated cardboard will grow by exactly 1/8" over a 1 foot span along the flutes if placed outside for 30 minutes on a damp or foggy or humid day.
....an 8 foot piece will grow a full inch!
2) Block size = the size of a square cornered sheet required to make your window, taken up to the nearest even inch.
