    Hello, The drivers side door on my coupe is misaligned. the rear gap is about twice a wide as the front and the rear edge is out from the alingment with the rear fender by 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch. Can anyone offer advice on repair? Is there some adjustment for the door alignment? Thanks.

    Don't know for sure, but I would assume the door is bolted to door hinges, allowing for adjustment. I'd have to hit up a body-shop that knows what they're doing to adjust a door, something tells me d-i-y-ing a door would just end up with a more-out-of-alignment door. If that's something you have no experience with, I would think it's tricky enough it might well be worth paying somebody to do - obviously you'll have to make that call yourself.
