Mk1 Escort engine bay dimensions

Hey, me and my father have purchased a mk1 escort as a project, the front end is totally rotten. so the front panel had to be removed and so did the wings. the engine was also removed.
 
Strut tops have rotten so have the wingrails.
 
i need to know the dimension of the enginebay, strut to strut, wing rail to wing rail and any other dimension you can provide. 
 
i need these dimensions before i start welding the new ones in as i need it to be straight and true before anything is welded.
also the bonnet was totally rotten so i carnt use that either.
Cheers Ash

    Ummm....I'm tipping you are better off buying a whole new car, if you are asking for dimensions to put it right.
    I think Smcka has a front cut that could probably help you out (if you're a Sydney local)....or I have a mint shell for sale if you are a Melbourne local....but from the sounds of the post, I think you must be in the UK!!!
