Re: [DML] doors rubbing T panel

Hi Dave

this is what i though..but the present height of the T panel seems 
to line through with the top of the door.

i have undone all the screws to the t panel and bent the rear clips
just now the sticky pad holding in place.
this pad is reluctant to let go and i don't want to bend the panel.

i still can't see that by raising the panel by 2 or 3mm the doors 
will miss.

any help would be appreciated.
