Use a ruler and a spirit level. Cheap at bunnings. Once the doors are aligned tac weld them in place. 8-)

are the hinges boltes or welded to the body ,and is the top hinge pin worn,grab the bottom of the door and lift,any play?if bolted on loosen the top hinge bolts to body and lift,tighten.repeat until you get it,bottom will slide over the same.a little bit on hinges is a lot on the door,have fun.its easier with the guards off on a full respray.
