I'm not sure what year your Stang is, but on my 66 there is a bolt at the top of the door jamb. If you open the door and look in at the top you can see it. I just disassembled my whole front end and noticed that this bolt was missing on the passengers side, and the fender was up against the windshield trim, causing a scuff in the paint. Sounds like you may have the same problem.

maybe because its just sheet metal and it bends so if you push down it it, its going to give some..........
