25/04/2004 21:34:00   john   The rebuild of my 96 has finally began and it looks splenid, I have fitteda a new second hand door which I have aligning well with nice gaps all round, however, it seems about 1/4" higher thand it needs to hit the door striker plate and catch, I have set the plate as low as it will go but cannot get the catch to go over it, the only thing I can think of is to elongate the holes on the body a bit so I can move the plate further down, any suggestions?
