Default 71 nova, doors welded to hinges? or bolted?

i am working on a 71 nova and was going to line the doors up with the quarters and there is no way i can see to adjust them. did the factory weld them on with no bolts?

They need to be bent to adjust them, it is a very touchy situation to bend the door, you need to jack it or put something in between the jam and push the door closed against the wedge we used a tall socket, you have to do it just slightly untill you get the height you need.
