Anyone with a D FA 100WR?

Could someone with a D FA 100mm WR take a couple of measurements for me?

I'm getting a custom case foam made up and I cannot put my hands on one of these lens to take measurements. I am planning on getting the lens later on this year but I need my case ready to rock in a few weeks, I figured that I might as well get it ready for my "future" lenses. The D FA is the only one I cannot find among my friends/stores.

Anyway, I'm looking for the Diameter and the height of the Hood. See photo.

Thanks in advance.

The outer diameter of the hood is 2.9 inches. And it measures 2.32 inches in height.

FWIW the hood can be reverse-mounted for more compact storage.

Yeah I know. I needed the diameter to make sure I'd get the hole large enough to fit, with hood mounted in reverse. And the depth so I can make the wider hole just deep enough in order to keep some lateral support on the lens itself instead of only on the hood (My used 50-135 had a broken bayonet on the hood because of this, too much strain on this little piece of plastic when sideways during shipping). The whole thing may be overkill but I had some free time
