Panel Parts Matching Marks

A mark has been placed on each body panel to indicate the parts matching positions.

Description

• All dimensions indicated in the figures are actual.

• When using a tracking gauge, adjust both pointers to equal length. Then check the pointers and gauge itself to make sure there is no free play.

• When a measuring tape is used, check to be sure there is no elongation, twisting or bending.

• Measurements should be taken at the center of the mounting holes.

• An asterisk (*) following the value at the measuring point indicates that the measuring point on the other side is symmetrically the same value.

• The coordinates of the measurement points are the distances measured from the standard line of ″X″, ″Y″ and ″Z″.
