You could wrap the glass and set it down inside it and that would be pretty close

easy way it to assemble the door and align it before you put the fenders back on.

If the door changes alignment with 5-10# of weight difference I think you need new hinges.

I believe that Fantom Works owner Dan Short said they used 15 lb sand bags in the doors.
