Default Never do this

Ok, never take a call when your playing Project Gothem 3, from a friend who owns a junker ford. I made that mistake. So he called me an I answered to only be offered to take the driver side door hinges off so they can be replaced. Not realizing that it was 5 o'clock in December I drove to his house to be told that his door weighed about 100 pounds and I would be the one holding it. I figured it would be a 1 hour job... It wasnt. It took us about 4 almost 5 hours to put the new door hinges on and do 3% of the needed adjustment before we quit. The moral of the story is that you never answer your phone while playing Xbox 360 from a friend who is always working on his car no matter the tempature.

I sound like your friend, I was once caught in the middle of a horrible snow storm in a junk yard for 4 hours up in barrie ontario in -20 oC weather. All I wanted was that turbo and intercooler

Well I got it and was pretty sick for a few days after aswell. Oh well, it was well worth it in the end.

Unless they're like really old T-bird hinges and you can't close the door, I'd just loosen the hinge, put some jack pressure on the door, and tighten back up. Worked on my Reatta.
