Joey,
With the body on the dolly I understand getting the lines close; however, are you saying you have set the gaps for the doors? I was under the impression it had to be on the frame using shims.
Do you try to get pretty close on the gaps prior to mounting the body on the frame and then just do minor adjustments?
Looks Great so far.
Thanks
