Does anyone have any rear fender measurements so I can compare? Or does this seem right?

I thought it would be even but maybe not? This measurement is on the good one of the two so I'm basing the other one if this one.

Can anyone with new fenders confirm?

At least you were lucky enough to find some, I've had no luck and will be ordering new ones fairly soon.
