Top of door curvature correct?
« on: January 23, 2014, 03:23:42 AM »

I have new door skins installed on the original inner structures of my '68 doors and have some concerns about the curvature of the top outside edge of the door possibly having been altered by the hammer and dollying of the door skin flange.

If I place my window inside the door (no weather stripping felts installed), hold it in what would be the "all the way up" position, and then press it against the outside edge of the opening, the glass does not contact the door the entire length.

When both ends of the glass touch the outside edge of the door, there is an 1/8 gap between the middle of the glass and the outside edge of the door.......The curvature of the glass and the curvature of the outside edge of the door are close but not exactly the same.

Is that correct or should the curvature of the door and the glass be identical?

Thanks.......Dave
