    HI,

    My '79 is the the shop getting some body work done and I am making new curtains. Problem - i have lost the measurements of the rear window! Can anyone please give me a hand?

    Plan to hang the curtains on wire attached on the rear hatch top and bottom about an inch clad of the glass. So need length and height.

    Cheers.

    Hi openwindows,
    400mm vertical & 1140mm width. Mines a Sopru & that curtain track hangs off a rear cupboard & that adds another 2omm to the vertical.
    Always make that extra bit on the width for when they're closed;).
    Cheers
    Only 3/8th inch available on top edge & 1 1/4 inch on bottom edge of tail gate. Translation is ...total available top edge of tail gate to bottom edge before tail gate panel is 425mm.
    Now I hope that helps but unusual for the imperial measurements from your age group;):p:D. I'm old...you're young.
    Cheers
