Initially you should ensure the assemblies are in good shape. There are many plastic bushings and washers which over time will break and wear. Get a rebuild kit from Rick's etc and go over the assembly. Not real difficult. Getting the units out isn't too bad once you disconnect the door from the pivot arm coming forward from the horizontal shaft that goes through the inner fender.

Adjustment is done by various means. We're talking low-tech 60's. There are two phillps screws on the front inside edge of the doors and two 5/16" post nuts on the back of the outer edge of the doors which allow some movement. That's been sufficient for me. You can also get some adjustment from the whole assembly where it bolts to the radiator support. You could also enlarge those holes if you needed more. Not difficult but can take time.

Yep Rick is right, small tools and a few hours sitting on your butt putzing with it. New plastic gasket/seal/washer kit is highly recommended. The collar washers are very important to free flowing doors. :)

Part of the fun too is the grill specs. I have two RS grills and both of them have different headlight opening dimensions :) And that's side-to- side! One is repro the other is GM. You wind up splitting the difference to get the best fit and appearance.
