Hi everyone those of you with experience of the Sylva Leader may be able to help ,the doors I have do not seem to fit very well I have tried to get them sat in the correct position but they never sit very well against the hood

Might be easier to show what's going on with some photos?

so I've tried marking up the one close image to find out whats going on.

are the little brackets (in the red circles) meant to be a "fully open" door stop/angle limiter? not noticed these before on another Leader.

also, why are the bolts in the blue circles so long?

not sure what exactly is your issue - you say the doors "never sit very well against the hood"....do you mean against the rear bodywork (when door is closed)?

Sorry to little info ,the bracket circled is for the mirror no my problem is where the hood meets the door at the top of the screen it just doesn’t seem to fit I’ve tried to move the doors up but it just sits wrong big gaps the bolts are just temporary.
