1968 Camaro Door and Quarter misaligned--Question for Group

I'm considering buying a 68 SS that has had the rear quarters, floor pan, trunk lid, rear light panel and trunk pan recently replaced.
One of the problems: the bottom of both doors stick out about 3/8" too far
from where they should be--they are out of line with the bottom of the quarter panels--as if the bottom of the quarter panels were pushed in too far. (I believe the quarters were replaced by a body-man-in-training.)
My question--is it reasonable to assume that the welder did not properly align the bottom of the quarter panels with the doors before welding the quarters to the car? The gap is uniform from bottom to top but the quarter seems to be pushed too far in. If not, could something else explain the gap in the bottom of the door and the bottom of the quarter panel?
What would something like this take to fix? Cost?
Thanks in advance, Brent Virgina

quarter panels aligned together? I'd say that if the rockers and quarters are the same then the doors need to be aligned which is a simple thing to do if you are patient. If not then pretty much any body shop can do the work, except the one that it came out of.

Can anyone suggest a way to troubleshoot a non-functioning temp gauge in a 68 camaro?
Basic information: The gauge is located in the console and reads 0. When you disconnect the lead to the sensor the gauge jumps high. The sensor appears relatively new (it is a rebuilt 350) whereas the gauge is original.
Many thanks,
Steve
