Is this gap normal?

    Hey all, I just noticed something that I never noticed before, perhaps because I never sit in the passenger seat, perhaps because it wasn't there before.

    On my dash, where the dash meets the A pillar, there is a huge gap where the two should meet. It's so wide you can even see the edge of the lip where the two should overlap. On the driver's side the gap is much smaller, and acceptable.

    Last year, I had subframe connectors welded in, and I'm paranoid that maybe they had the car up on a lift, and the frame flexed, and when they welded them in the it stayed flexed, resulting in the huge gap. Surely it couldn't flex that much, and not at this spot??

    Do any of you guys have more space on side than the other, or a huge gap like this? Anybody?

    I've got pictures, but I can't seem to attach them:rolleyes:

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Please post pictures.
    You have to use a photo sharing site.

    Might be a little large, but nothing too bad.
    The interior figment isn't great to begin with.

    Ok, Thanks guys.

    I was concerned that maybe something had twisted or bent out of shape in the frame or something. I was looking for reference photos, but that angle isn't easy find in photos.;)

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Its pretty normal. Plus if something was twisted that bad out of shape, your door probably wouldn't shut....

    Yeah, not sure if it was there before I had subframe connectors welded in, and I adjusted the coilovers. But can't really see how it could flex that much, especially at that point. Door gaps don't look that bad.
