Hi bought these A panels from De Marco parts and the fitment is rubbish.
They fit away from door and sit inwards. Is this normal with A panels from other suppliers?Which ones fit best please? 20210304_154104.jpg20210301_153026.jpg

That doesn't look any worse than the gap I have, using a genuine renault panel with the base of the a pillar and the hinges built in.
