For those who have been watching or helping with my vacuum problem, thanks and the process continues.  Now that I have gotten the doors to go up they are getting stuck on the body.  The headlight door closest to the hood is catching on the body.  I was wondering if here is an adjustment  that can be made to the door or even the hole assembly. I have noticed that where the hood and body meet at the nose, the body is about 3/16" higher.
Joel mentioned bowing but I'm not sure how that could have happened.  The front of the car hasn't been up on jackstands, only ramps. 
 
Thanks

Anyone know how I can get to those bolts that they show in the video?  I took a quick look while I was laying under the car and I just couldn't tell.  Maybe its another job for my daughter!
