Hi, I had the trunk lid repainted due to missing paint around vent and they fixed fiberglass chip at top of passenger door, shaved some off, put rubber pad to prevent further chipping. They could not figure out how to adjust both doors where bottom, rear side kind of tips out. Top of door/window area seems flush but the lower part at the jam seems out a bit. Is this a necessary evil with fiberglass kit cars and I should accept it or is there a silver bullet here? If it is part of the deal then I can accept that, just figured I will ask about these punchlist items in early ownership vs have someone mention it in five years and kick myself for not asking when I first got the car.

The CMC door bottom issue is common, some of it can be reduced by adjusting the top hinge with a thin shim then see if you can move the door jamb striker plate in a bit ( the thickness of weather stripping may need to be reduced) is sometimes this helps but doesn't not eliminate the issue. More labor intensives, you can split the inner and outer door shell and take out the amount that is protruding and reassemble or, build up the lower right 1/4 and rocker to match the door .
