New Design Headlights/ Tailights

Hello, Im on a quest to attempt to have a cool new refreshed thirdgen taillights & headlights 3D molded and designed trough a manufacturer using a cad model however I need need some help with the exact dimensions. I have scoured the internet trying to find exact measurement & dimensions for both head & taillights but to no avail. Would anybody have this info on hand ? (Please ignore the extra camber on the design its not mine, obviously )

The car needs a wheel alignment.

Best suggestion for dimension is to go to a junkyard with a measuring tape. Better yet, go to a junkyard and pull a set of OEM tail lights and have them 3D scanned for exact size.
