I ask this question because the space in front of the passanger door looks greater then the space behind the passanger door. The space infront and behind of the drivers door is normal. Can the nose be adjusted to makeup for the extra space in front of the passanger door?

your door hinges or hinge pin bushings are probably worn or sagging..

how to repair the door hinges is almost the same between brands....

you can tell if you lift up on your doors with them open about a foot..  you will notice that they lift significantly..

here is an almost 8 minute video on youtube that shows the drivers side of a C3 getting its drivers door hinge pins and pin bushings replaced.

some of the detail is left out.. like driving the bushing into the hinge.. but most of its covered.

Can you install a 4 speed automatic trans. In a 1965 corvette coupe without frame rework ?
