    My doors don't work correctly. While they appear solid and virtually rust 
free, they just don't latch as they should. The right side seems a little 
loose on it's latch, not holding as solidly as I would like to see on it's 
weatherstrips. The left side is even worse, not latching on the main catch 
all but swinging out to the secondary catch. Only pushing the door lever into 
the lock position will hold it to the main catch. Nothing seems to hold the 
doors in the open position.
    I would like to improve the doors, and have in mind installing new rubber 
and other bits to return the doors to like new serviceability. Do any of you 
folks who have restored this area have any suggestions? It would seem that at 
least some of the guts (window winders, etc.) will need to come out for 
service. What parts should I order to do this properly? I have an old tube of 
3M weatherstrip adhesive, a sort of yellowish jelly. Is there something
