It would have to being the upper section of the quarter wasn't changed and the door wasn't moved. Am I right, at that point with the first door skin and the new quarter installed the top of the door fit, matching the height of the quarter?

Yes, the top of the door still lined up. The lines on the door were lower than the lines on the skin though. Even now the top of the door will still line up to the top of the quarter, but then the door C stripe lines will be lower than the quarter lines. Which is why the gap between the door and rocker is so large, because the door is lifted up higher than it should be so the door C stripe lines match up with those on the quarter.
