1966 Door Adjustment Question


I think I have my doors where they need to be. However, the question that I have is concerning the hinge bolts inside the door. Because I was having so much trouble with the drivers side door adjustment I decided to look inside the inspection plate where the hinge connects to the door (top and bottom). I took off the inspection plates and oiled the bolts inside but I was afraid to try any adjustment with these bolts.
So my question is : Do any of you use these bolts to adjust the doors?

thanks

Yes, that is where you adjust them, up and down, forward and back. Take one of those bolts out and you will see how it works. I'll assume you are working alone so if you can close and latch the door. With the window down. Reach inside and loosen the bolts then use a padded flat bar to move it where it needs to be. Then reach through and snug them up and try the fit. May take several tries to get it where it needs to be. Good Luck.

Thanks for your reply. The driver side is shemed with 1/4" Shems @ the hinge bolts to the cab. It does not look that good so I will try to use the adjustments from inside the door. I could not see if the bolts inside the door had slots, but I am guessing that they do.
thank again for your reply.
