I've never worried about absolute security. I hate it when someone breaks my vintage glass only to learn there's nothing worth stealing in there. Your handles and locks are different than mine. If I remember right though, the ice pick handles may be interchanged. 15 minutes in the garage will give you a solid answer though. Then it would be a matter of getting someone to rekey one if it works. Kind of a lot of trouble to have one key. One key wasn't a reality until many years later the way I remember it.

don't bother locking the doors, just put a club on the steering wheel.

I thought you locked the doors on the older VW's by pushing the inside door handle in the direction opposite of how you turn to open it. I didn't think you could interchange driver and passenger door handle assemblies because they turn opposite directions on opposite sides (mirror images). Do you really need to be able to unlock the passenger door, you would be getting in the driver door if you were going to go somewhere.

just thinking out loud

i think the handles could be used on either side if wanted since they are the same

Cool. I've read up on it, because I need to do mine too, and it sounds like it's easy to fuck up and break the glass when using the new seals. Some folks have settled for using a cut bicycle tube for a seal, and this allows the glass to be pressed in and held well enough without having to man handle it in there trying not to break it.

I have a plan

make a wood jig so metal framing stays square
have extra wood type jaws (4)
use hair spray to lower friction and is tacky once dry

finished the 1st vent window
waiting 24 hrs until I remove it from the jig to make sure the glass stays put...

edit:
- had to use some hair spray to get the glass to stay put after removing from the jig
thanks goes to gearless24 for the top tip...!!

Guru Jeffery...
If you have a little time this week after your work day and could stop by my garage to give me advice on how to get the drivers side door aligned better that would be great. It seems to "want" to be adjusted out at the bottom but the hinge is already out all the way. Thanks pal. Soda on me

Yeah man. I'm no expert on door alignment, but I'd be happy to stop by and check it out. I'm looking forward to seeing the glass work you've done in person.
