Can I get some measurements of the very back slopped panel on back of lotus 7's? Its the panel in front of spare tire and usually has a Taunt cover on it.
I have a very long term project and trying to make it look like an old 7.

I think the proportions look 'off' mostly because the rear tire sits a foot or so further rearward relative to the structural elements you're visually referencing.

For the angle of the back panel, google <lotus seven drawing> and put a protractor to a side view. Other than the straight-up-and-down back panel, I think you're capturing the look and feel quite nicely.

Where's you get the front fenders? I recognize the rears, of course.
