I don't know if this would help or not Henry but, when I was working on a 37 Chevy Coupe years ago and was trying to get the door gaps to where I wanted them....I took the coating off of a steel arc welding rod and migged it onto the door...ground off what I didn't want and had a beautiful gap.

I don't know if this would help in the situation your in now or if you've done it before but thought I would mention it.

not needed in this situation but will remember that. The main issues was the doors up top near the glass. Seems to be a troubled area on those cars that come in and ones that I've seen on the road. The upper portion doesn't seem to match the nice gap below the glass. Also see that on Chevy trucks of that time.

OK Thanks for the clarification Henry, I wasn't sure...I've done a couple of old Chevy's of that era but only frame on so I wouldn't really have any tricks specific for that type of frame off resto.

Thanks
Ray
