So after painting my car 5 years ago I never got my body panels aligned right. Mainly my hood, fenders, and light covers. Didn't car cuz it was my dd. But now that I'm buffering her out and she's starting to look nice, I am starting to care.

Tips, procedures, suggestions for aligning the body panels and getting those lines sexy straight?

Start with what you can't adjust.

Normally the doors. Make sure the doors fit the quarters just right. Then the fenders, end with the hood.

Two people make it easier. Don't loosen the nuts all the way, just enough to get some movement. Take your time.

I need to get around to doing this with Chaos. Right now, I just have them on. Not even close.

I just got done doing this on my bro's honda.
It's a pain, but yeah, you want 2 people to do it and take your time to get the lines just right.

I think I'm gonna need to do this too. My hood is a bit left and the top of my driver door sticks out a little (probably what's causing my windows not to seal completely).
