1974 Nova SS
Ya passenger side is pretty good. I’m not sure. It didn’t seem like it was a hit from what I have seen. I may take it all the way down to metal to see what I have.Passenger side door looks good. You think it got hit on the DS? Doesn't look at all mangled underneath, from what I noticed.
Ya I ordered another set of pins and sleeves for and also a new door striker cause mine looks worn out. But I did put the jack under it and it moved it some so when I get those new parts in I will see where it sits and maybe do more as needed. Honestly I think it was crap back then I just didnt notice haha. But it’s a old car with new stuff on it so not everything will line up right. But I will do my best to get it close and go from there.I don't remember my gaps either when I removed the doors and experienced the same issue. New bushings and pins, door was tight. My 72 has welded hinges and the only thing that came to mind is closing the door as much as possible but enough room to put a short 2x4 under the flat bottom part of the door and taking a small jack to it. It worked. Not a whole lot you can do.
The other possibility is the new door skin has changed things up as far as the gaps go. How does the top window frame look as far as alignment goes. The new skin would not have impacted that alignment.
Yep my passenger side is good but that driver side was just a little wider than I would like. Hopefully it all comes out good.Nice work, same situation here on the door/quarter gap. Passenger side is perfect and the driver side is wide. The driver side door is perfect with the fender but the fender only goes back so far till it hits the rocker. Looking forward to how it comes out.
