      • Decided to go with the W115 latch, Instead of the W126. Got the OEM measurements from Auto pro as well as a replica upper gasket. Thank you AutoPro!!

        The OEM lower gasket really wont work without major mods to the G28 inner door. Made my own cover.

        • The OEM Latch is mounted lower than the G28 latch location.

          The engine bonnet release handle had to be moved lower as well.

          • Took a ton of time to fabricate the handle support.

            I had fond memories of this massive erector set my dad bought me when I was in second grade

            Ordered up a remote door lock and unlock system.

            While Im waiting around, made additional adjustments and fiber-glassed the outer door skin (again).

            Next is the reinstall of the window glass and mounting of the OEM outer wind sweep.

            • Wow, what a ton or work there. I think I honestly would have tapped out at that point out of frustration. Mad props to you for pushing forward. This car is going to be epic and is most certainly in good hands given the amount of care and attention you have shown on this build... er.... REDO. lol

              Keep up the good work and the updates coming. I am really looking forward to seeing this thing completed and it will be such a solid car when it is.

                • Re-assembled the door, glass etc and checked fit and function . finalized the welding.

                  Took it all apart, metal prepped and painted.

                  Fiber glassed in the frame.

                  Once it dries re-assemble

                  • Cleaned up the window channel inserts and reinstalled along with motor and glass.

                    Then made bracket for attaching outer window sweep to outer door skin, after modifying the skin a bit

                    Pretty happy the way it is coming along

                        • For the door locks I will be using MES Swiss made actuators and a cable system rather than a lever system.

                          Bought 2 of the same cheap Chinese systems with remote, instructions were lame but got it to work. I have to test it a bit more, but since it wont be inside the door, I will probably use it

                          Using the fiero wiring and two relays with the OEM switch

                          just waiting on some hardware for the cable install.

                          • Simple Man, if it is not too late, you might want to check out the PBS-II keyless unit by DigitalGuardDawg,com I have installed many of these and find them to be well suited and tech supported. The five channels are easy to program and give the option for keyfob door poppers and keyfob accent lighting among other things. The lights flash and it has all the other typical functions. It is going to be more pricey but it is exactly what is needed. Also comes with push button start and billet starter button. The adjustable arming is another great feature.

                            • Are you also going to look at some form of side crash protection as well? Maybe a bar of some sort going from front pillar to rear pillar/posts to to provide side impact protection? I have been thinking about ways to do that as well on my Countach build.

                              Cheers

                                76, the system I purchased does all I need it to. locks, unlocks and flashes parking lights.
                                If the China system fails viper is my next option.
