Door latches

I don't know if this is an interior question, or an exterior question, so I'm putting it in general, I hope thats ok. So I'm doing some work on an old Nash, 1928 Street rod. Upon removing the door panels to replace the broken side glass, I found the original builder of this machine used the craziest system of cables and levers you could imagine to operate the inside and outside door latches. They barely work, don't look great and have proven unreliable, so I'd like to improve on the "design". I don't have any specific questions, but I'm really just looking for inspiration. If any of you guys happen to have any pictures of the inside of your doors and latching arrangements you've worked out, that would be great.

what are the latches? If they are stock, pictures would help lots. Bearclaws - easy enough to use cable or rods. What door handles are you working with?
