    Camaro rear window size help

    I am restoring a 1970 camaro I have a new roof skin on and 2 new quarter panels but they do not line up
    can anyone help me with some measurements
    the quaters line up with the inner skin but the roof is about half inch smaller I need some measurements from the top of the rear window from the quater panel not the flange
    thank you for your help

    Unless you are using NOS [original GM] panels they are unlikely to fit exactly.
    Most aftermarket repair panels are designed as 'patch' repair panels to sort out rust or collision damage. some are bigger than factory panels some smaller, and the more complex the shape of the original the harder to get a good match,I know this is not the sort of news you want to hear but a good body man can work wonders, talk to people in your area to get a good guy on the case. there is usually plenty cutting, shaping an trial fitting to get a good result.

    Have you got the rear window? if you have I suggest make a cardboard template and measure off of that, when i did mine there is plenty of spare room around the opening, remembering you need to get the little spring clips in around the edges to hold the bright trim, mine was a '72 like yours with a small window,
