    I have Installed a body shell (TUB) that didn't have any door hinges, I have installed new fenders, I am trying to install new doors, and can not seem to get the doors to align correctly! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    I have always found it easier to do this with the fenders off. hang the door, adjust with the door closed. set gaps as close as you can to even. open door and make final adjustments.sliding the door foward or back is a real pain with fenders on!!

    <font color=blue>The doors will never be straight if the door bushings are worn. They're easy to replace</font color=blue>
