JK Soft door final adjustment?

I believe I have finally made the very hard to fit doors fit. As I have seen and read the problems that most people are having with these doors( mostly the drivers side). this is how I got mine to close tightly and sealed the best possible way I could. First I needed to bend the top door hinge pin on the drivers side so it pulled the door forward and it was bent out of shape so i had to make it straight as well. It was necessary to use the provided washers on the top pin as well to raise the door. Second I had to raise the back of the door to get the weather strip to fit into the jam by raising the door striker on the jeep. This was raised all the way up to max adjustment. I had the door bottom pin adjustment and door latch both loose until door fit properly. With the door top half off as well. When I was happy with the fit, I tighten all the loose components. After the bottom half was done the top only needed to be adjusted with the adjustment collars on the pins. I tried the bending option but found it only made the door not fit right. So any bending was unbent. I also fixed the leak at the window hinge seal with a piece of 1/8" x 1-1/8 " foam stuck behind the seal. As far as the top of the doors flexing when driving on the highway I used a piece strap connected to the top of the door with a eyelet grommet and use a ball style bungee looped around the visor bracket.

Sideways pics make it tough to tell what you have going on.
