Can someone pull a measurement from the center of the bottom of the rear taillight housing straight down the bottom of the fender on a 62-67 pls.

I'm putting back the correct taillights on my 65 which was converted to the later style lights and there are holes (some of which were filled with bondo that I can see from the inside) that allows it to go in two positions.

I got 8 5/8" on one side and 8 3/4" on the other from the little tit on the bottom of the tail light housing, to the bottom of the fender straight down.
