some little steps done:

-installed the doors.
-installed some nos locks (with M5 screws instead of rivets) and door stop rubber on the passenger door (the rubber look a little different...)
-installed a better looking 02.57 speedo i cleaned years ago.
-most of the Time i searched the right Screws for that work with the Parts book and the Screw box with the Splitwindow screws....

The aftermarket door wedges are crap. But you can flip them left to right and get more miles out of them

Also our new fangled primer and paint systems make for a much thicker paint layer.
The thicker paint will fill that tight gas door gap.

Christian, maybe you can stick some self adhesive, high density foam band on the inside of the gas door, in the gap right next to the hinge. maybe 3-6mm thick. that way the foam will rest against the hinge before the door actually touches the opening ( not opening all the way).
This is what I use, available from Hostra company/ Industrial Rubber and hardware. it is called Zellkautschuk ( natural rubber) and it is water repelling, not soaking and quenching like usual cheap foam.

Now i adjust it a little bit out and realized that it don´t hit the side, it is tight but it worked, i want to keep it like factory, so it it would hit someday, no matter. thanks.

I built a extra wiring harness for the extra flashers front and rear and emergency switch as i need for legal street registration, i hope it works. I want to keep the old little Semaphore switch to control them.

Also cleaned the wiper engine and the Hardware.

sure, the Brush is for teeth they said.

Fuel door now finished with a nos lock.

It take me some hours to adjust the nos treasure chest lock and installed the nos cover with a old nos seal.

Found out that all the early nos wiper spindles i have are different that the one i need (~60-64) so i disassembled the spindles and my Fingernail and cleaned them and installed with nos seals.

I still looking for good Quality door seals, the set i have is real hard.
i have one piece that is soft enough and looks correct when insert the different way. The Problem is i can´t remember where i bought that piece of seal...
