    Does anyone know if the rear door over all panel sizes are the same on the barn door version as the lift up door ? (where the windows would be) I have the exact sizes for twin doors but don’t know if the lift up door is the same.

    Thanks very much, I have all those but their not accurate enough. It has to be cut to the panel size. I can make it to fit the double doors but need to know if the same one will fit the lift up door.

    Hi Martin,
    1450x570mm Just measured mine, it’s a 2004 T5 tailgate with panel (not glass). Let me know if you need the side panels (SWB)

    If I was being pedantic I’d say 573mm but to keep it on the flat 570mm, here’s pic with magnetic measure

    Thanks for that. I am trying to make an accurate template that I can use again. I have half for double doors, so was putting those Two together to make the single one.

    I actually tend to always use cut line tape for flooded panels now as it saves any slight discrepancies in the outlines which as you say aren’t really accurate enough to cut from.

    Years ago I did start making a few templates with leftover silicone backing paper & kept them handy only to find I’d never get the same van again!! :bangshead: So gave up & went for the cut line instead. :thumbsup:

    Yes I use the wrap cut myself, but this is for stuff sent out to a customer who wants to fit himself.

    Ahhhh! yes, I see. I guess sending out a roll of tape with it wouldn’t be ideal then 😆 Hope the dimensions help so.
