Default Phoenix Jupiter

i have recently aquired a phoeinx Juptier with the front of the fuse gone. What I have been looking for is the length. I know its 53.5 or something like that but I'm not sure if thats with the cowl , spinner and prop or to the fire wall. I need to know the length to the firewall in order to rebuild it. I could make an educated guess by looking at pictues on the web but I'd like to know the exact length to the firewall. any internal pics of the plane would be great as well
Thanks in advance AJ

I have an unbuilt kit. The cowl is 5" tall. The fuselage length from firewall to the back of the tail is 43-3/4 " in length.
