    Default Fitting doors, trunk, hood

    Any experts in the house on fitting this stuff ? Looking for some tech advice. Iím on the drivers door at the moment. Moved the hinges all over and Iím still high on the fwd outbd side.
    Not reallly seeing any options.
    Didnít know if this is the area where you do a lot of blocking and sanding and add a lot of Mud, lol.

    Well, if anyone is interested it looks like this is a known issue. Jeff K has some pics and as suspected you’ll probably have to mud the bottom and top of the door to flush things up. It’s a process.

    Do you have the front-wheel elephant ears installed? It will effect the doors (bottom) and the header / side-pipe fitment.
    If I remember, the driver door is worse than the passenger.
    Great to hear you're back at it.

    Not sure who will do your paint, but Jeff will just have you get it good-enuf to open & close and he'll do final fitment and finish. (same for hood & trunk too. Don't sweat it)
