Default Can someone get me a hood measurement?

I got in a minor front end collision, that I don't believe suffered any frame damage. The fenders look untouched, but they could be slightly bent. I got a Carbon Miata hood to replace the bent stock hood, and it fits like garbage. Can anyone get a measurement of their NB hood width, so I can figure out of my hood is almost an inch too narrow, or if my fenders were pushed out? The corners by the headlights would be a good place to compare to, such as below.

Thanks!

49-7/16"
or
49-3/8"

Somewhere between there.

Point to point, mine is 49"... and 49-3/4 to 49-13/16" from fender to fender. Sounds like an OEM hood will be the ticket.

Yeah, i re-measured from the under side this time. 49" or 49-1/8" on the hood, point to point.

My fenders are 49-1/2" on the dot.

Though, the front end of my car has been taken apart and put back together more than once.
