Default 92 LX Convert Door issue?

I've looked at 10+ 92,93 Converts and came across this door issue where it doesn't meet or close correct. I have checked if the door hinge pin is bad. There's no play in the door when open. It's only on passenger side door? Look at the pics. Does anybody have a clue

What does the gap between the door and front fender look like ?

That's a pretty big mismatch. Just wonder if the frame itself isn't tweaked, but hard for us to say with out more pics.

It's a common prob. The vert chassis is a wet noodle, especially after 25-30 years, things start to sag and bulge some. The latch in the door has bolts slotted for adjustment as well as the hinge bolts having some play. Subframe connectors can really help keep things from flexing further.

Yea Yea The gap on front Q and door match up perfect! Its only were the pic shows it. If I push door in more with my hands the top part of door will line up. Like I said almost every convert I saw had this problem, but only on passenger side door? Im new to converts, I see a black piece with male and female connections on door and inside frame area where door meets. Must be for so the door doesnt get all out of wack. Would replacing them help or is this part of owner 25+ convert?

Thanks
