4 door to 2 door conversion measurements for 68 Ford Torino

I was asked to help with some measurements of the 1968 2 door Ford Torino. The measurements should help with the 4 door to 2 door conversions. I made the picture below with all the requested measurements. The solid red lines are where the measurement was made, and the dotted red lines connect the measurement number to the measurement line. All measurements are in inches and taken with a standard tape measure. I have uploaded pictures of the measuring below so you can see how it was measured for reference. For example like on the outside of a trim piece or the inside. I will also add more info with pictures below. Please only use measurements in the line drawing with the red lines, and use the pictures for help with tape measure references. If you need a printed copy of the measurements mailed contact me to discuss options. If you need any other measurements added overtime, or notice a mistake please let me know.
