  1. You'd still need to chop into the corners :thumbsup:
  2. You'll probably need to badger the whole lot off with a Dead Frenchman, anyway. I usually fan out the gusset with a split stebbing, then knock the whole lot flush with an arsing hammer.

  10. You'd destroy the frame if you tried to chisel that much out all around the frame. Have you tried to ease the liners - yge wood that the tape measure sits against on your first photo? If that comes off you should be able to hang tge door further back into the frame.
