    so what did you end up doing to get doors lined up? I tried putting thick paint stir sticks under door. close it, loosen up hinge bolts, get gap looking good by sliding door around, and then tightening up the hinge bolts. i think it moves a little when tightening the hinge bolts, but its off a little again. Im curious how you did yours.

    Cody, I'm really not sure. My current plan is to mount them under the dash or under the console.

    I made these blocks out of some vinyl trim I had.

    Put the door bumpers in.

    I left the striker loose, cut a piece of plastic juice jug to go behind the striker washer so
    I would not scratch up the epoxy. As I got the door closer, I tightened up the striker from
    inside the door.

    Added wood shims as needed.
