Final Assemble

The right side door had a serious fit problem.

As you can see in the above picture, the triangle part of the door was bent down.

This caused a serious gap in the door as you can see above.

Using a dye grinder I cut a line on the lower edge of the triangle area. Being careful not to cut all the way through.

Using a wooden door shim, I spaced the corner up a little.

I then put a strap around the body holding the door snugly in place.  I used a hot air heat gun to warm up the area that needed to bend.  Using a temperature sensor I kept checking that the temperature did not go over 250 degrees. The fiberglass will start to burn at 300.

Now you can see the gap is even.

This fix was a joint effort with ideas coming from Jim in Long Island, Mike H., Jim B., and myself. Thanks Guys.
