Help?!?!? 68 Camaro door stuck shut

My son was trying to help yesterday with the 68 Camaro we're working on and thought he'd go ahead and adjust the passenger door. He didn't know you have to remove the striker to line it up properly and adjusted the hinges, it wouldn't just fall into place so I'm guessing he muscled it into place on the latch. He wasn't home last night to apply a little muscle from inside (the only release available is the one the outside handle pushes). Any ideas of how to get the blamed thing open? I'm thinking since he'll be home tonight, have him push from the inside as I push the latch release. The other option I can think of is take a pair of vise Grips to the threaded end of the striker from inside the quarter and loosen it a little.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
