    Top and bottom. Door was slightly to tall so I had to cut some off. So I ended up trimming off the top and bottom and looks nicer. Lucky on me.

    Ah ok , that will take care of it , how much did you trim off , those end and top fillers are not very big or thick if you want , if I recall correctly they are around 1 inch or something like that.

    I cut off 1/8inch on top and 1/4 on bottom.

    So basically problem solved other than maybe a coat of paint?

    Yes. I used a mini roller like someone mentions. It worked better than I thought. A few dings on the door, but paint kinda took care of that.

    Good you were able to cut the bad off the door.
    How will you handle mortising the hinges?

    That won’t be bad. I marked it and chiseled out what I needed.

    Next thing I got to do was put the door knob on and then cut out a new spot for it to latch into the frame. Existing hole what I plan to do is all the sawdust that I had from cutting off the top and bottom of the door I’m going to mix that sawdust with some wood glue and filled at in and sand it down free paint. I need to update the switch plate on the wall too lol.

    I’m impressed. Thought you would’ve got flumuxed with hanging it. You seem to have thought it thru. Glad it’s working out for you so far.
