Yes, all the samples have been the same size - about 10 1/2" x 6" x 1". The test span is 10" with the bearing rod 5" from either support. Two of the three rods are free-moving and one is fixed.

I still need to buy the windshield and the wipers to go with it.

Edit: The box beams in the frame of a 1/2 ton pickup are about 6" deep. The floor of CarBEN is about 8-9" deep, and the sides form a 'U' that is about 32-36" deep. The box beam on the pickup is about 2" wide, and the bottom of CarBEN is about 5 *feet* wide.
Sincerely, Neil
