Well, I finally succeeded in getting my passenger door aligned. For those of you that missed my previous posts,
What I did to cause all my problems was:

1) I removed my hinges without marking the body and the door.

2) After I removed my hinges, I sanded and painted the body and door, thus removing any possible marks that could be used to realign.

3) The biggest mistake that I made was not asking this forum what to do before I took off my hinges.

I really appreciate all of the responses that I got. Without your help I would probably be posting a for sale sign in the classified.

One more question: Any Suggestions for fixing paint chips? (We all know how the chips occurred) LOL

Thanks Again,
Mike Boyle

My car is a Winter Blue 1969 convertible with black standard interior. It has an original (untouched) 302 2V C4 with ~53,000 miles on it.

Im going through the exact same thing on my 66... i didnt mark anything before i took them off, however i know it wont help you now but i found a good trick. On my 66 behind the door jamb is a square piece of metal that just rests there (where the hinge bolts thread into). I took them out and could clearly see the outline of where it is used to be... so i taped around this area on the square piece of steel and painted a fluroescent orange, popped it back in place and BAM, doors went right back on. This was kinda hard to describe but i hope it helps

To fix the paint chips, get a book of matches. Use the non-lighting end to take a drop of paint and touch it to the chip area, then use the match end to smooth it in.
