I have to agree that many of the repop parts don't fit worth a cr**. If you are replacing the quarter, is it also "repop"? That may be adding to the fit problems, as I haven't seen any of those fit properly either. The ones that I have seen, have a problem with the fit in the area around the "fake vents" on down. They are poorly stamped in that area. Also the amount of the misfit may not be that bad. Unless you actually measured it, it probably isn't that large, just looks like it. Although I am a fan of the Mustangs of that era, I have to admit that they had poor fits from the factory. I would avoid cutting that door, if possible, but then it is repop. Unfortunately, the glue on seals do make it hard to properly check the fit of the door in the opening. If you trust that he knows what he is doing, I would let the body man do what he feels he needs to do.
