Door locks, handles and catches

Bought an abandoned project.. Well, I have nothing to start with and need to buy all the required parts that are missing.
What do I need. I have a GT Forté MK2 body with recesses for the handles.

Where to get a complete set handles, catches etcetera that suits my needs.
Also need door hinges.
Also need front and rear clip catches, handles complete set.

Best regards JP
 
One thought, contact any of the manufactures (CAV, RCR, Superformance etc.) and perhaps they can sell you a set. I suspect the door hinges may be something you'll need to fabricate.

Simples.

Or do something more like originals using BL Mini catches.

Locks? Why? A screwdriver and 2 minutes removes the entire window!

Thanks, just the pictures I needed to get an idea.
I know car builder solutions very well so thanks for the hint.

And looking to the pics, we have met, 2015 Silverstone Classic. You where there with the club, we where there with a Green MK1 USA spec Capri doing Silvestone Classic Retrorun.
We had a nice chat and you introduced us to the club....... and finaly I am a member.
While we know each other from the V8 forum such longer and didn't know...

Next question, front and rear clip handles and catches...

Hi JP,
Front & rear Clip latches can be sourced from RS Components under part number 687-174
RS Components | Electronic and Electrical Components
As you have a GT Forte body, you can buy the matching handles direct from them
Door Handles
Or if you have the facilities or capability you can make your own, as I have my own drawing, which I can provide if required
Door latches are MIni/MG etc adapted to fit. More Information on my build is here:

Thanks Ian. I’m going to try a couple of those bear claw latches.
Been on the car builders site often enough but never noticed them.

Cheers.
