Hi,
I bought some used half doors for my YJ and they don't line up right? Is there a way to adjust them. I had to put some washers on the top pole thing (where the door slides on) and it helped but i still have to lift it by hand to make it shut tight. Can also see daylight on top corner. Any suggestions???
Thanks!

I just bought some full doors to replace my half doors. I haven't gone through the adjustment yet as I'm messing with the the lock cylinders, but here's what the guy told me to do:

Use a heat gun or torch to warm up the bolts that connect the hinge to the door. Those bolts sit in a slit and when loose allow for some play so you can adjust the door. The heat is to help with the thread locker so you don't snap the head off the bolt. Once the bolts are loose line the door up and when you are happy with how it fits tighten the bolts
