[DML] Re: doors rubbing T panel

My driver's door rubs ever so slightly at the back corner.  When both
doors are fully open, both of the door corners touch the T-panel
corners.  I've got the driver's b-pillar weatherstrip removed at
present and the screws removed to clean the glue off.  I don't see a
way to adjust it besides vertically since the holes line up pretty
straight.  If I pop it up I'll have a gap at my rear quarters, and I
can't move it further back as it's already butted up against the b-pillar.
Can you clarify how to adjust the T-panel for us?
