Default Door clearance ?

I am more or less finished my steel and glass door. It occurred that is is a pretty tight fit to the opening of the oven and things do expand when heated.

Has anybody figured out the proper clearance between a steel door and the arch or bricks?

1/4 to 3/8 should be fine. You don't want any binding when cool for certain, and the wider the overlap outside the door, the more leeway you have for gappage.
