Door won't fit

Door problem: 95 yj...

I bought a hard top and full metal doors for my yj. The passanger door fit fine, the drivers door dose'nt fit. It has a 3/4 inch gap up on the top by the windshield. I tried adjusting the hinges, but it won't close right. HELP is offline   Quote

I sugest adjusting the hinges so the door aligns correctly at the bottom and back so it closes correctly. Then adjust the windshield so that it aligns correctly with the front of the door. Adjust it by loosening the bolts at the dash and the bolts on the top of the side support bars back by the roll bar (the bars that run from the windshield to the roll bar). I used a ratching tiedown strap to crank it back where I need it to be then tighten all the bolts. The big problem is if it hasn't been moved in a long time the hinges may be rusted and this could turn into an all day project.
