Before anything got cut on the car I had to adjust the door gaps the best I could and get a better idea whats going on these hinges are welded on so theres very little adjustment.
from every thing I'm seein it looks like the bottom of the hinge pillar is pushed back a little...Why ? because the bottom of the door is tight and the top is wide but adjusted to ok,plus from the damage I can tell the old door really got shoved into the 1/4 especially at the bottom where the 1/4 was all bent in about a 1/4" so they changed the door, I checked its a different color...And the rocker has a an upward bow so I'm sure the pillar needs to go forward a little.....
Now that I know where all the damage is and what I'm replacing I'll jack up the car to a workable hight...the jack stands HAVE to be under the suspension so its just like it was sitting on the wheels....
