Putting the doors back on

I can take the doors off by myself easily but I find it impossible to put them back on by myself. Is there an easy way to hold and align the hinges by yourself? It only takes a minute or two when my dad helps but just in case he's not home when I need it back on.

My method:
Driver side - From the interior side of the door, reach through the open window with my left hand and grab the door handle, right hand somewhere on the front side of the door, stick head through the window, eyeball the target and gently place them down. Reverse for passenger side.

I have 1 hand at the top of where the window is(where the window is rolled up) and the other hand holding the bottom of the door and do it that way.

+1 I always roll down the windows and reach through grabbing the inner handle. I have manual doors so I can imagine how much heavier the electric versions are. Screw that. Plus more to go wrong. I'm moving to soft or half doors eventually anyway.
