I noticed that the driver's side door on our 96 firebird sits out maybe an 1/8 of an inch at the back end, almost like it hasn't fully closed. Is there any way to adjust the latch to pull it in a little more? It's not a big deal, but it would be nice if I could get it to close just a little more.

Can you get a few pics of it?

I wasn't able to get pics because I don't see the car in the daylight at all during the week.

Anyway, when I got home tonight I loosened the two T35 torx scews holding the striker plate (the lower one for the latch), I loosened it just enough that I was able to hit it with the end of the ratchet and slowly push it in (towards the center of the car) a bit. Pushed it in about 1/8 inch and now the door sits perfect.

Hopefully someone can make use of that info.
