It is interesting to note that BMC did not appear to be very precise
themselves when it came to publishing measurement.
In Austin Service Journal - Volume 26 BODY 3 - dated August 30 1956
these measurements were given as 9" for BN1 and 7 3/4" for BN2.
These earlier measurements were a bit closer to the actual measurements
but clearly were just a general indication to bring out the fact that
the wings (fenders) were different.
