Default How to adjust SVC door

The driver side door on my SVC 2005 kit hangs just a little low at the rear. If I lift it slightly as I close it then it clicks fine and is correctly aligned with the body. I have no idea where to start to fix this: adjusting the door on the hinges or the hinges on the body, and the assembly manual is no longer available. Can anyone tell me where the adjustment points are? I would expect that somewhere there are bolts in slotted holes that allow for adjustment. Id really like to know where I should start to be able to rotate the rear of the door upwards to engage the latch before I start loosening anything and possibly make the alignment worse instead of better.

The holes in the hinges where they bolt on to the door are slotted. You can loosen those up a bit and move the door around.

Thanks. After further investigation I can see that there is no adjustment on the frame side of the hinge as it’s a pin that fits in a bracket welded to the frame, so I’ll see if I can make the minor adjustment to the doors. It seems the easiest thing to do would be to just close the door and loosen the bolts, hold the door tight and retighten the bolts so that it aligns better,because the fit is very close when it’s closed, possibly just a tiny bit low since the pressure has worn off the weatherstripping.
