It's fixed - on to the next item on the list...
Door will not close as it contacts the plastic frame trim.
During manufacture the paneling was not trimmed flush with the wall stud, causing the plastic frame trim to be 'warped' outward near the bottom of the frame. To resolve this, the paneling was trimmed flush.
2 sided 3M adhesive and clamping the frame trim as shown to correct the 'bend'.
The door now closes correctly. A slight adjustment to the lockset also helped to make it 'better than new'.
