Problem with windows hitting

I'm assembling my '66 coupe since being painted. The original doors were pretty rusty in the normal spots so I found a real nice set of rust free original '66 doors from a donor car. The problem I'm having is with the driver door, with the window rolled up and the quarter window also rolled up the door window hits the quarter window. The bottom is good, around half way up it starts to hit the quarter window. Is there any adjustment for this? It seems like if I could get the top of the window to move back an eighth inch it would be perfect. Thanks

'66 coupe 289 .030 over, Performer RPM, Holley 650, way to big crane cam, Canfield CNC stage 1's 2.02-1.94, probe forged pistons, ARP everything, toploader 4spd, 8" rear 4:10's w/mini spool. Best to date 12.95 @ 106 in the 1/4.

It appears that it only took him 12 minutes to receive the info from Bill and do the job start to finish. That was easy.

Lol, my interior is already completely taken out. Quarter window has adjustments to remedy my problem. A video on what to do was sent to me and I did it right then. Done.
