[DML] My doors not symmetrical

Hello group,

I can finally start to concentrate on some of the cosmetic issues my 
car has now that the mechanical stuff is all sorted out. 

I noticed that if you look directly at the font of the car the left 
and right door do not sit exactly the same. With both doors closed 
I  can see the following differences between the left and right 
side: The gap in between the T panel and the door is wider on the 
drivers side (by 1/8th inch or so), The gap in between the door and 
the windshield is wider on the drivers side and the door seems a 
little "raised" in proportion to the passengers side. Ironically the 
driver's side is my "no problem" door in that it shuts perfectly 
with both strikers engaging at the same time. The passenger's side 
has never closed well, even after spending hours lining the strikers 
up. I got it so that the door will close OK IF you pull by the 
handle strap or push the door down from outside at the same 
location. If you try to push the door closed away from this central 
point it seems like the door warps slightly and causes one striker 
to hit before the other. 

Do I need to adjust one or more of my doors? It just seems like they 
should be more symmetrical, it bothers me cosmetically. Also, with 
both doors open the passenger door seems lower than the driver's
