Just trying to put it all together in my head. You probably have said all this but I don't remember for sure.

Now with the old door skin did it line up with the quarter "C" lines before you changed the quarter? The photo looks pretty good. This of course REALLY lays it all on that quarter.

Yes, according to the pictures it must have been lined up pretty good. I don't recall hanging it but don't know why I would have put it on any other way than what lines up properly. Which is why I think it is the quarter. The quarter could have come down some on the rocker. Maybe 1/8".

if your measurements are the same now measure the doors and the space between the lines. It must be your door skin then. I guessed your quarter cause you replaced that area and it was waaay off even for an aftermarket skin.

Wait, were you meaning measurement between the 2 C lines or between each C line to rocker? If I do the latter I can prove it's the quarter. I think ultimately I'm probably going to end up hanging the door to split the difference, maybe add a little something here or there because I just don't want to do anymore major reconstructive work to the quarter I've decided.

On those short lines on the quarter you could take a spoon and massage the line down a little then a skim coat of polyester putty over the top to smooth out any marks and you could bring that line down a hair.

oh ok, so it was the quarter as I originally suspected. Yeah, sounds like you can do a few things to minimize it. What Martin suggested works well. You can use a dolly to change the door gap a hair and then fill and use tape to get the recreated line straight. Lots of ways to handle this.

Lizer, I meant the space between the top C line and the lower of the top two lines.
