Would anyone be able to tell me the correct height above fender wells to position Speedster Side Spear Moldings correctly? Thank you, Bob

Using Mikes measurements, connect the dots through the center of the door handles. The spears should line up with the center of the door handles. I have seen a few restorations where the spears end up on the lower portion of the door handle and it doesn't look right.
