Re: doors way off.... 1/4" too far back!
Thanks, Patrick for the pix. A-pillar is the term I was looking for! I've got a die grinder so will use that to elongate the holes forward. If I have to elongate the hinge holes as well, I'll have to use metal epoxy to inject into the bolt hole to hopefully keep it from moving in the future.
Glad this is not a strict restoration and it's to be a fun car. I'll go back in my receipts this weekend and find what brand name and who sold me these repops. Seems anything made overseas can be way off as far as specs is concerned. But my local machine shop when he does my block .030 over on the cylinders the .030 over made in American piston rings fit like a charm and the end gaps are on spec!
