As can be seen from the photos the cab door is catching at the back. I have looked at the adjustment threads but cant seem to make sense of what i need to do ? There seems to be a good gap at the front edge, it just needs moving along a tad. I cant see that there has been any previous work on the A or B posts ?
Many thanks

small movements...
undo the 4 screws on each hinge and knock the hinge in towards the bus...moves the door back
move the hinge out away from the bus...moves the door forward

if that doesnt give you enough change...more extreme but crude adjustment technique...

mallet handle between the hinges and gently open and close the door...moves the door forward
open the door fully, and gently rock on the hinges...moves the door backwards

combination of the upper and lower hinge twists the door either way to get a straight edge etc....

basic and crude, but thats the basics

Same problem with mine, taking out the Monkey Dubs seals helped though - amazing how much displacement new seals can cause.
