1958 Corvette

I recently purchased a 1958 corvette. The driver door has alignment issues. I would like to raise it 3/16 to 1/4'' and not sure if I can do this internally on the door. Or can be done on the body side of the hinge.( This is the hinge side only ).

Has this door been shimed ? There is a shim kit you can use to solve most alignment issues ...
