Hello fellow FEBO members. Wanted to know if anyone has ever had this issue I am having..........and if so, how did they resolve. I recently re-attached the door to my '70 Challenger and installed new exterior door handle, door weatherstrip, and striker. After getting everything lined up, I closed the door, and it all looked good. The door was flush with the rear quarter panel. However, when I pulled on the door to verify it sealed and latched properly, the door opened about 1/8 of an inch, but the latch still held it closed. This didn't seam right to me, and I did not remember this being the case before the door was removed. I tried moving the striker inboard, towards the interior of the car, but the same thing happend. The striker and the latch will hold the door close, but the door is not flush with the rear quarter panel. Has anyone ever experienced this? If so, how did you fix it?
