Post Door handles and things

Both of my door handles are broken. It is my understandingg that they are a very weak item on the 914. Has any one had any fun using something else? I have some old Opel handles......

On a more serious topic-
Oil pressure gets to around 70 psi cold, drops to 50 pretty soon and will run at ~25 at 3000 rpm. I am burning a fair bit of oil.
Do you think it would be worthwhile to just replace rings?
Compression was right around 100 psi at each cylinder. Motor was stone cold, throttle wide open.
I seem to have a noisy valve at #1 that I can't completely adjust out.
Motor runs well otherwise, ignoring the puff of blue when shifting.

Leaky Targa tops?

Thanks all!!
