The car is a driver, I will be doing a full restoration in a couple of years time, once I have a little more time and less work. As far as I can tell it was never wreaked/hit, the frame is very straight and it drives very nice.
The passenger side is perfect, the gap is uniform and no rubbing. The LH fender is diffineately too low in the front, the first time I turned on the headlights, I noticed the low beam is literally pointing straight down. I just want to adjust the LH fender up in the front a 1/8 - 1/16 and that will put my gap at the cowl inline with the passenger side fender. I think that will stop my door rubbing issue as well.
I have lots of spare shims all different sizes, just looking for a procedure to follow, kinda like... remove front bumper, remove driver's side headlight bezel, loosen fender bolts at position a, b, c, etc...
I went through the 1965 Shop manual, it says remove bumper, remove headlight brackets, loosen rad mounting brackets bolts, loosen fender bolts and then adjust to get proper uniformed gap. Just a little too vague for a noob like me.
Thanks again for your help.
