If it is readable, yes. I have a photo of an original, yellowed template, but the numbers are not readable... Thanks

so far so good. how do I locate the center of the big hole? My numbers on the template photo that I have are measured from the edge of the gas fill depression. Can you tell me what that number is? Thanks.

You can't tell from the picture but I sawzalled the bottom off the body. There isn't a filler neck hole to measure from. What I can tell you is the ruler is angled from the bump stop for the trunk lid down to where the protrusion below the tail light starts to bend, and the picture where the ruler is horizontal the end is at the base of the curve..
