Hello,
I am working on a digital model of an L-29 Cabriolet and would like to find a car in northern California to take some measurements.

Here is the chassis so far:

If you're unable to find a cabriolet to measure, you could buy the L29 factory drawing of a four door sedan from the ACD Museum, use it to gain basic information. Then with photos of a cabriolet, using the technique of extracting the side view of the car by eliminating perspective, you can make drawings of the car. This technique is shown by Niko Moritz in figure 2 at: http://eevamoritz.com/babyd.html

A search for L29 at http://www.smcars.net/forums/ will show several side view drawings you may be able to use. Pico Elgin
