Hi, I bought my T several years ago but my late wife's ill health meant it has sat unloved in the garage for a few years. I have finally got around to doing a few jobs on it in an attempt to get it back on the road. The front passenger door has never sat right, I have now got the door aligned with the front wing and the door sill but the back door now looks worse than before. Does anyone know the correct way to adjust the top hinge to get the rear door to come out further. RR/Bentley manuals give details of getting the doors square in the frames but not adjustment in and out. I'm wondering if it has had a whack in the back door and bent the hinge as where it passes through the B pillar the edge of the hole is rippled.
Any help appreciated, otherwise I will have to remove the door and hinges to investigate further.

So, is the problem now that rear of the front door isn't level with the front of the rear door? Is it not just a case of moving the front door latch in a bit?

Hi Art, the bottom of the rear door is pretty much where it needs to be but the top is at least 1/8" to far in. I will try and upload a couple of pic's later.
