Re: Adjusting drivers door shut line

James, Looking at it from above the door is sitting 1-2 mm in from the bulkhead line so it needs to come out a little so this would resolve it I think, so out of the four pillar bolts holding the hinge which one would you not undo so that I can adjust it and it does'nt drop ? Clearly this door has n...

Re: Adjusting drivers door shut line

Hi Angus,
No it's me that's was'nt thinking straight first thing in the morning :doh:
You are quite right, I will probably need to adjust the door correctly, thanks for the tip on the paper for gapping as I was wondering how to get it right without guesswork.

Re: Adjusting drivers door shut line

Thanks guys. I will try the lubricating the hinge first to see if it will make any difference and solve the problem :fingerscrossed: Failing that then I will need to adjust it, what worries me is that the door does not have a lot of space on the back or front edge gaps to move the alignment, so just...

Adjusting drivers door shut line

Just noticed that my drivers door is now just touching when first opening the back edge of the bonnet / wing, how do I adjust this out to stop it damaging the paint further. Do I need some shims under the hinge plate to push it slightly further back or is there a better way of resolving this ? https...

Re: WELDING AND CHICKEN WIRE ON BONNET ?

There should also be a type of sound deadening material sitting on top of the wire mesh frame between it and the bonnet which you need to be sure to keep if it is still there as it is no longer available as a part number.
If it is missing I have found an alternative which works just as well.

Darren, The dashboard top is able to come out with the windscreen in place but it is not easy job as it is a very tight fit on the back edge to allow for the four threaded bots in the top to sit in the slotted brackets that hold it in place.
