O.K., I'm after some help on this one please.
I have to build the doors for my closed cab pickup (non ford), so I have
to start from scratch as the original doors were tacked on to a wooden
inner frame.
Have started to build the frames but have to fit locks, handles and
window winders. Have so far started with Gemini window winders,
but have not worked out very well.

What I am after is ideas on what is a good fit. I don't want guess's,
I want tried and tested.

I have looked at ED ford window winders, these are not bad, I think
these might be worth trying.

I want thirty's door handles on the outside with some way of locking
mechanism as well.
Not V.W., they look like V.W. yuck.

With the locks and the winders, space is the issue. Very narrow
space to work with.

I have 2x 34 ford outer door handles with keys, brand new and won't be needed for the 37 if interested...... early MX5 handles look grouse, but with my now looonng doors will use 80 series landcruiser door handles.

Bryan,
Check out ford Escort for window winders, they use a completely different system to your normal big gear, and lever type.
Hard for me to describe exactly what they are like, but they are simple and far easier to adapt.
Cheers, Phil.

Thanks Franky. Yeah I am interested. I would prefer second hand, but.
What sort of dollars you looking at. My email is aussierodder7@hotmail.com

Mr Model A, I will look into them. Have been making my pickup back
lately, but nearly back to the doors. Thanks

Bryan
