  1. You are correct its a bit low but I couldn't get it better than where I have it now, the seal was done a while ago...I should have taken the time to adjust the door then but I was honestly a little inexperienced...I have no trouble with motor and mechanical work but when it comes to making it pretty I lack some of the skills.. learning slowly but surely
  2. Ive heard that works, I do have 2 on order should be here next week...so ill wait until then
  3. You are correct in your observation, not sure of the accident part but I am sure this car has been repainted by some slop who had little regard but that's ok because EVENTUALLY I will get after a proper paint job, for now I just needed to have the door close properly so I don't have to slam it and it bounce almost every time. The best thing is that this car runs, drives and stops...have had it for 3 years doing a little at a time..you all should have seen it when I bought it lmaoo
  4. A photo of what i got done last night, had to slam the door to close it..im assuming kernel?
  5. Just a quick update spent a few hrs trying at this after coming close to throwing a ratchet across the garage this is what i came up with- I was able to get the door aligned to an acceptable standard I removed the striker plate completely aligned the door the best i could and bolted everything back up Next i do agree the kernel has seen better days, so i ordered some replacements i would imagine the newer ones will engage the latch sooner..aiding in door closure For those asking they are URO replacement seals which i just finished trimming because the door was rubbing in a few places. This car is a driver and hardly sees the rain so im not worried about door seals for water Spent enough time in there tonight--Next on my list is to make sure the glass is adjusted correctly and replace a few of those grommets that go in the latch/lock mechanism and she should be ready to go back together This has to be one of the most time consuming jobs ive done so far..but a little progress is better than none
  6. Thanks all looks like i have a little work ahead of me
  7. I cannot for the life of my figure out how to adjust the door properly looking for some guidance this is the besy ive got so far. Im not sure if things are out of whack or if im doing something wrong, i do have some luck closing the door with the window down

  10. I always replace it VERY dry and have had no issues Ive done probably 20 water pumps on various cars Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. A bad caliper or air on the lines will likely cause this, start by bleeding the whole system. If you determine you have a bad caliper I would change it, and upgrade to stainless lines...same thing happened to me when I first bought my car. I replaced the caliper, and the lines; the car ran like new after Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
