Default RB Pitbox dimensions?

I'm currently designing my own full carbon fiber pit box and I was wondering about the sizes to the RB one to use for reference.

Could anyone with the RB pit box measure it for me, basically the following dimensions:

-Height
-Width
-Depth



Will post some renders of the design I'm working on.

Why would you want to copy the RB box?
The beauty of a self designed box is, that you can build it as YOU need it.
I did my own box and tailored it exactly to my needs, i.e. the starter box, fuel gun, tools and everything else I wanted to have in there.

I actually designed mine because non of the boxes available seemed very practical. Each one had a flaw I didn't like.

I'm not planning to copy the RB pit box, I want to use it's dimensions as a reference. I will try to make mine less wide as I think the RB pit box takes up too much space.
Finished version 1 tonight:




Probably will make V2 a bit shorter and a bit lower.

For my 2 cents I deem that a very useful pit bag should contain also the starter box...

Looks like the stater box is located on the lower level.

It has a fuel catch tank build into it. You can take it out and empty it after a day of racing. This way there won't be any fuel spilling in the pit lane.
