Re: Door not sitting flush when shut?

Let's forget the semantics of what does/doesn't constitute a question, and bring some objectivity to resolving the issue.

DD is correct, small adjustments are much more effective.

However, to diagnose the issue correctly (whether it's a latch adjustment or a hinge); Alan, would you mind posting a picture of the door closed against the next panel that it doesn't quite line-up with?

Thank you in advance.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
