920mm at rear
960mm ar front
390 between
remember that this measured at the bottom so the 390 will decrease as you move up as the rear seat is at an angle
No sense being pessimistic. It wouldn't work anyway.

John can you pls measure the gap from the top of the back seat to the back of the dog box so I can work out the angle
