    After more digging out filler on the pillar it looks like the door has been hit bending the pillar area making the door fit bad. So here are some pics. Anyone scrapping a shell they could cut the area out for me ? Cheers.

    Been busy drilling spot welds out. Quite a few I must say. Flitch panel removed. Then came cutting the pillar out.
    Inner sill is minty fresh behind as is the rest so all good. On with the repair pillar next weekend also need some gas to weld it on. Will update next week.

    Update. Need some help on this. I've found a other pillar which I have welded in but the problem is the door gap is exactly the same as before. Iam at a loss to what is causing this! Any one shed some light on it. Here is a pic. It's tight at the top and wide as it meets the lower point of the pillar. Also I have a big wing to door gap.
