    Door alignment

    The passenger door on my Stag is off centre, any advice on adjusting the gaps?

        Don’t be tempted to undo the hinges from the body, there’s a decent amount of movement if you undo at the door. Might help to have another pair of hands

          Can I ease the door card off at that end to get to the bolts without taking the whole card off?
          is it just clipped in?

            Its secured by a lip on the top edge that will not bend, you will probably just damage it trying that, remove the handle cover and quarter light knob, then its just clipped along the front back and bottom edges and hooked on the top edge, ease it up to disengage the lip. remove the wires for the puddle light. a few minutes should do it..

              Worth getting a copy of the ROM (repair operations manual) if you haven’t got one, which is where my picture came from. While you’re waiting for it to arrive you can print the pages you need from the Hrampian Stags website. Makes a lot of Jon’s a lot easier.

                  That’s Grampian by the way not Hrampian

                    How do you mean off centre? Mine was about 5mm out at the base. So just twisted it. Held top and bottom of the rear end of door twisted anti clockwise until it aligned. Nothing snapped still working and looks a treat.

                      Be careful to keep the window frame where it should be so the seals touch. It does not have much adjustment.
                      this means that the door gaps need to be thought about in conjunction with the frame position, usually at the body restoration stage.
                      metalwork adjustments ie removing or adding steel have to be done at both ends of a door ideally, not just at one end.
                      There are 2 secrets to staying on top :- 1. Don't give everything away.
                      2.

                        The top front side of the door is just catching the lip on the front wing, so about 3 to 4mm out.

                          Can you take a picture from side on and post it up?

                            I managed to move it a couple of mm, this is how it is now, before they were touching.
                            If I take it any more the door latch catches the bode latch plate
