Jim, It's been some years since I restored one of these Bennetts. The first thing that I see is that you have the hinges installed backwards. The doors open out which means that the hinges need to curve away from the door opening. If you change them then try to fit the doors, I think your other issues might become clear? Once reversed, the hinges should fit into the door and slide down on the pins. Since the hinge retainers were left on the door during paint, the painted pins might be difficult to get into the hinges? You might have to remove the pin assembly and clean them of paint? Once cleaned and reinstalled, have someone help with hanging the doors. The alignment is tricky for one person. Good luck. Paul www.severngaspumps.com
