I would start out with the blade width its a lot easier to remove more than put it back. I like the idea of reinforcement before the cut .
A few peices of advice form one who learned the hard way: Make sure you are doing the cutting and hinging work with the body supported by the frame it is on. I did the finish work on mine when it was on a body stand and once it was on the body (and painted of course!) the gaps were different. I had to re-work and re-paint the inside jambs of the door. Also, make sure to allow for the thickness of the primer and paint. It is thicker than you think!
Most pro builders that I know use 3/16" for a gap around doors.
