Judging by the pic it looks like the door is a little to far forward and the gao is a little tight so Imagine your sticking a screwdriver in the gap and twisting it so the gap opens up....which way is the hinge going to bend ...the rest is up to you....

I'm such an accomplished metal shaper now I'm taking my gas door to Chip Foose and demanding a job!

I think I got a bunch of ideas to at least visualize when it's back in front of me. I'll come up with something to "fab" up.
