Post Sectioning a 53 Chevy Coupe

Hey out there in the cyber world of automotive guru....

I am sectioning a 1953 Chevy coupe, the problem I have is concerning the hinge post and the hinges lining up properly..
I understand how to section the body "3 inch's. but when I lower the top half down on the bottom half, the hinges for the doors will not line up. So after I section the body, then I will section the door shells to fit, which will raise the lower hinge hole on the door up, and keep the hinge on the post in the same position. Is there anyone out there that can explain to me how to fix this problem, and do it the easy way, so I don't have to waste time and labor.... Thanks for all your help......

Is there per chance that on can just take 3" off of the bottom of the door and 3" off off the bottom end of the door post..seems to me to be logical and would save a bunch of fiddling with hinges..Just a thought..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
