screen door out of alignment

Crazy question,
Screen door out of alignment on my '03 31' classic. Gap at top and bottom. Having a dickens of a time trying to get door aligned. Is it ok to try and bend door or do I have to bend hinges. Hinges are riveted and no adjustment. Do not know where to start

I can win any argument on any subject. People know this and steer away from me at parties. Often as a sign of their respect, they don't even invite me.

Bending is the fix but you have to know how to bend it. You might need a wood black and a hammer to nudge the hinge.

Mine had a gap at the top. I presumed it was from the PO holding on to the handle while going down the steps. I held the bottom and pulled in on the top and torqued the door until the gasket seated evenly along the latch side. I was concerned about breaking a weld on the door, but didn't.
