Got a few questions there....

Door handles, depends on where they are broken. Many times the small plastic slider on the inside has broken. The replacement part is 10 bucks. You need to remove the handle to check.

Get a Haynes manual if you do not know the proceedure to remove the handles...it involves removing the door panel....

If the flapper or the bolt flap is broken you need to replace it. They are available used for 30-50 bucks.


Oil burning, and "just" replacing the rings. Depends on how many miles are on the bottom end, anything over 100K since a rebuild is a good time to do it....unless you LIKE pulling motors.

Leaky Targa tops....where? Up front, you probably need a new seal, GPR has oem ones that work...Pelican has been having problems with their suppliers in the past....that MAY have changed, call and ask.

On seals, I am original german manufacturer fan. Copies MOSTLY don't last.

If you are leaking in the rear of the targa, Sammy Gore makes a replacement that is just as godd as oem, but cheaper...it's an easy one to make. He posts on this and rennlist.

Good Luck....
