78 door alignment help

Recommended Posts

My original door fits fine but has dents so I picked up a replacement door
 Problem is I can’t get the door to line up at the top and bottom unless I take out the bolts on the bottom bracket and move the door out. The only way I can think about fixing this is cutting out the door captive nuts and welding them where I need.

Bolt alignment to get the door flush as you can see this is beyond enlarging the holes on the brackets

You need to set the door with the fender on. Both ends need to line up. Get the fender end of the door right first. Use shims if necessary. One, or both or none is fine. If the rear doesn't line up, twist it like I illustrated in my "Lily" thread
