you can bust the paint loose on the hinges and adjust them. horrible job. i used washers to raise the door. put the washers on the hinge pins to raise them. have fun. doors are heavy........be careful.

You can prolly get away with spacing just one hinge pin per side.

I'd make some one piece spacers & tape them in place before lifting the door onto the hinge.
