How much play is in the top hinges?

Did you rebuild the hinges before you tried to put the doors on?

The hinge pin and bushing kit is around $11.00 (USD)

I'm afraid it might be a little bit of trial and error. With hinges or not? If so make sure you trace a line with a pen so you can at least be in the Ball Park. If not, a lot of hinges to the door are sleeved so you have little to no adjustment. Depending on the gap at the rear door you may have adjust the hinge at the body. Either of the hinges can be adjusted to make the door come up but, it depends on which one will give you a consistent gap at the rear door while keeping the body line straight.
Short Cut... There is a tool that attaches to the door striker and latch at the same time so you can force the door up a little.
Best of luck

I don't know if this would work but I got some nice fenders as well if I pull my fenders off close my doors the loosen up the bolts then tighten them up with the doors closed? Would that work?

Yes it makes it easier to access the bolts on the hinge at the body. Make sure you only loosen the bolts just a little, so you tap the hinge (from the inside)just a little while you watch the distance you move it with the line you marked with the pen. Move it a bit, retighten and see how much you moved it up.
