You'll find that if any slop is present, it won't be much. The answer is to hang the door before making the final pass of folding the edge, and before tacking the skin to the shell, to check fit. Then taking it back off to finish. Tailoring the fit of corners to your exact car is to be expected after skin replacement. Some need little, some need lots.
