Default Door Alignment


My 68 firebird was redone about 5 years ago by the PO. The drivers side door has a gap on the lower rear. Pictures from before final painting indicate the door does seem to fit correctly. It closes hard, the newish looking upper hinge seems worn as well, I can lift the door 1/4+ inch so I have a replacement pin/bushings.

Looking for tips for adjusting the door and replacing the bushing. I have watched some youtube videos and I am wondering if it's worth removing the front fender as its already a put together car.

Attached are some pics.
