Thank you Martinsr, and Killer, for the suggestions. I do have the body fastened down solid, but I haven't shimmed anything like I found in the orginal wood frame. I have a background in housing, and the methods used there for adjusting doors, apply to the car also. I can shim a few places and see what it does, as I didn't weld down any parts. I did this because of the fitting session I knew was coming! Hope I can improve it some but it does close anyhow, except for the passenger door where the original owner got hit by something in 1943 lol. I am the second owner, bought it after he died in 1961. TY, Windy.
