Default Kevlar Doors

Dumb question maybe.
Picked up a set of Kevlar doors for the restore. Lexican windows fixed.
Any suggestions for door opening mechanism?? Can I use something from one of the Coupe spares (levers)?? Anyone got any photos or diagrams of what they use or what was used.
Thx

Disregard guys, found some old photos of John Bosch's car and his door set up. Simple wire frame and cord which I can match up to some bodge door clips (very much like a garden gate mechanism.
Cheers

I'd be interested in seeing the pictures Keith. Would it be of his Rothmans car?

Yep the Rothmans DIL999 that I have been trying to track the history of for the past while. PM me your e-mail and I'll send some over (I have a fair number). If you can add anything to this cars background I would be grateful.
