Default Spacer blocks

I can not find the material for the spacer blocks C-01441 on page 38-19 (RV-14A) for between the canopy to the roll bar. The plans give the width but not the thickness.

Would someone have one handy to measure and tell me the thickness of the blocks so I can make some?

I'm grateful, Larry

As I remember a length of wood came with the kit. I think it was about 6-8-10 inches long. I think one has to cut to length.

I measured the wood block from my recently-arrived finishing kit.

0.677" x 1.491" x 10"

You cut the block into 4 pieces as I recall.

My measurement came in a hair thinner on the 1" dimension than a 1x2. The question is whether it matters at all.
