Re: [T3] Door adjustment

Nope. There is no rust. Neither on the floor nor the hinges. No damage
either.  I've tired to raise the door by loosening the hinges, but hasn't
helped. It works for, say, 10 times, and then I need to lift it to close it
again. I also played around with the locking mechanism. One can move it up
and down (side ways too). 
I think I will try adding some washers to the hinges. If that doesn't work,
I'll try bending the hinges.
