Hi all,


Ive just had my estate doors painted, and the glass fitted.


im going to fit the door later this week, but my question is...


What is the easiest way to fit them, without damaging them, and getting them to line up.


And for some extra info:


Both doors are brand new

All seal are brand new

The hinges have has the repair ball things in them - all new with the nuts finger tight at present!

Hinges are currently bolted to the car with one gasket on each mounting point

A further 16 gaskets are to hand just in case as i read somewhere you have to double up in some cases?

A roll of masking tape is also on standby as so far i was going to just tape all the edges until i got a decent fit that didn't catch and repeat for both doors.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated!  :D
