I am doing some fine tune adjustments to my Gold car and would like to get the driver headlight door to close a little tighter. Before I took the car apart and painted it the doors were perfect. I have the passenger door adjusted great but the drivers doors needs just about a 1/4" more adjustment to close properly. I have adjusted the plate on the cross member all the way rearward and that is not getting me the last little bit of adjustment. The vacuum canisters are OER repops that work great but was wandering if I have one that has a shaft that is a little too long. Anyone had that problem, or is there another place where I should be looking to adjust to get this last little bit of adjustment?

I have found that when you run out of adjustment you can solve it with a pry bar, no really, not kidding. Take a look at it and see which way you need to tweak the bracket holding the canister.
