To adjust the doorchink

If the doorchinks has widened, as in this drawing from this Swedish nineteenfifthies workshop manual, loosen and remove the body screws in points a and b. In b put a ca 3 mm thick hard rubber piece on both sides between body and chassis. Reset and tighten the screws. If this is not enough use a thicker piece of rubber.
This work can be done on all cabrios, but if the body and chassis have been welded together (not unusual) it won't work. If the chink is to large you may have to cut the sills in the door opening, push with a jack from the roof and weld the cut together again. Check so you don't lift the roof of the garage instead!
