How do I scale this model to my desired fitment and maintain it's current appearance?

I am looking to scale an existing model to some new dimensions for fitment purposes but I don't know how to set the desired measurements without ruining the geometry completely.

Is there a way?

Could anyone please help me figure this out.

The model included is the model in question, the required measurements, I have included as well in a seperate sketch called Desired fitment.

You go back in the Feature Tree and edit all of the previous sketches/features so the part becomes the desired shape.

The part is poorly built, it will be a challenge. You may find it easier to build a new model.
