    My doors on my '05 387 Pete are out of adjustment. This is causing wear where the fiberglass is rubbing, excessive wind noise and binding if I let the seat belt get caught between the door and frame. I am wondering if the doors can be adjusted back into proper position or is the problem caused by the fiberglass attachment points wearing out?

    this has happened to our t2000s the fiberglass skin is glued to the door frame and when the door was opened the skin would pop and the bottom hinges would hang. i took the door off and took of the spacer plate and replaced it with a sheet of steel the same thickness and bent that so that it could go around the corner of the door and reinforce the hinge area
