  2. Neal, Finding a clean door may be difficult. I suggest having yours repaired by a qualified metal man. Shocks and wire harness and brake hoses are available from Roberts Motor Parts or Andy Bernbaum (spelling ?) Buy tubing from auto parts store and make your hard brake lines. What is wrong with the speedo? Be specific. If the needle fell of, try removing the stainless bezel and gluing the needle back on. If the needle plastic is warped, make a new one and glue it on. If you have the original seat, remove all old upholstery material and make repairs to the springs and seat spring frame and reco
