I am currently doing this to my 72 Elky and first you need the fenders off to access the bolts to adjust it left & right, up & down. I also find its easier with the weatherstripping off the door and the door striker off. I adjust left & right, up & down first, then the in & out adjustment with the hinge to door bolts. I also got tired of taking my fenders off to re-adjust my doors, so I sacrificed a ratchet and fabed a tool that can reach the cowl to hinge bolts with the fender on. There is also a excellent article written by Wes Vann on the Tech Reference pages on hanging doors and fenders. Good Luck.

Snap On makes a wrench the is specific for the job. I don't have the part # but any Snap On dealer should have one. Probably one of the slickest single use tools I've ever used.

Ragtop on a Camino frame-scary. You may have flexing problems, paint getting nicked around the deck lid corners and around the doors, etc. I have both caminos & ragtops, the frames are not the same. Sorry for the news, but if you really want a nice car you might want to keep looking for a convertible frame.
