wood work in 614 coupe 1930

I need a pic or dimensions of the wood that goes around the belt line in the rear window area --specifically the curved areas on both sides of the rear window --any one have a radius size for me --My car seems to be a bit twisted in this area and it is very dificult to trace a pattern from the roof or the rear inner fenders--any help would be greatly appreciated
thanks --Ken

Ken---I'll send you a pic of the old piece of rear window/ beltline piece that I have. I may even be able to put some dimensions on it.

Cut a templet out of cardboard.

Thanks Jack --got the pics --

Frank--I have been trying with cardboard--seems like my car has a bit of a glitch in the body --radius on one side is not the same on the other side I think with right twist I will be able to straighten it out but it makes tracing a cardboard pattern a bit difficult.
Thanks all
