convertible alignment wedges?

Thanks Brians

The pics are a great help. The car I'm restoring was a drag car in it's previous life and the frame was broken and repaired. I'll probably have to take it to a frame shop and get it checked. The doors aren't aligned too bad but not as well as I like so I assumed the solution was the 'alignment wedges'.
I have Brian Martin's panel alignment guide printed out and posted in my garage. The doors are aligned as good as I can get them, luckily it's a black car so the door gap isn't too noticeable but what's the good of restoring a car if you don't do it right! Hopefully the problem is in the frame and can be straightened.

thanks guys
