I've read about a couple folks on here having trouble getting the door to close flush with the body. Seems there is an issue with the plunger that comes stock resisting against the lock mechanism. This has more or less kept me from getting one (I love everything else i've gotten from Defenderworx). Do you have any issue with the left side popping up? Doesn't look like it in the pics, they look great! Fine job indeed.

You just take a pair of side cutting pliers and cut the green plunger thing off.

Is there a gate behind your car, or did you have to zig-zag 12 times to get into that position?
