pretty much what I've been saying all along. forget the spec and post up a pic so we can all argue over the method of repair already.

working on a 55 chevy and the guy says he wants 'factory' gaps without noticing we had already made them pretty good all around already. So I pointed to a door to quarter gap and asked him how crooked he wanted that one.

I still wonder if all those a pillars that are always leaving too small of a gap to the upper portion of the door on those 55's are actually factory or caused by the cowl being pushed back. I still haven't found any evidence that suggests it's from an accident, but I try to get a good look everytime before I porto it out a tad.
