Door fit at rear quarter panel

Post by Mark McCombs » Sat Sep 28, 2019 1:55 pm

Fellow Inmates-

Could some kind souls take a few photos of the correct clearance of the top of the door above the top hinge?

I know the back top edge of the doors should be slightly taller than the rear quarter panel, but does the rear quarter panel end just short of the top edge or does it continue under the door slightly?

I am fine tuning this intersection and what to make sure of the clearance here before I nail my panels on and call the tub done. A small thing but after the worlds longest tub rebuild, I want to be certain. Photos I have seen of original tubs appear to me to have a gap of about 1/16" between the front edge of the rear quarter and the fit of the rear top of the door...

Thanks-
