Can someone measure the upper windshield frame angles on either side for me?

Maybe from the front measure on the inside where the glass ends and the frame begins. Measure the angle from the top frame that runs across the top of the windshield and the sides that run downward.

I believe mine was pushed towards the drivers side and I want to know what the correct angle is so that maybe I can repair this frame.

I notice it in the winter when I have to put the top up.

Thanks in advance for the help!

I'll start...
I get 96.6 on both sides.

Thanks for the quick response!

Is that on the inside edge of the upper windshield frame from the front side of the car?

I will measure mine and report back with my figures.

Thanks again!

I assume that the inner and outer edges of the windshield frame are parallel with one another...
