That's a sharp looking ride.Couldn't see it all though because of some bald headed guy standing in the way but (just kidding, just kidding) can you snap a pic of the jam and hinges and post them. Like Weimer said they may just be on a bind. What you will have to do is mask the edges of the doors and put some sheets around the rockers so you don't get any damage and try to re-align the door if it is not lined up in the opening. Better yet, take some measurments, pull the door, and see how the hinges swing. It might be the case where the rear pillar is different than the front and either one or the other hinge is on an angle when it gets to you 12" opening. If that is the case then you will have to hook up with someone that has done that conversion and find out exactly how they did it. There are kits you can get but it is a rather involved process. Just leave the window down, hell if the Duke boys could do it so can you. LOL!!!!!!
