Bearclaw install

I'm using the standard outside handle modified to fit the Carolina Custom square hole. Good news is everything is tight, bad news is everything is tight. Maybe if I cut a slot in the vertical link between the Carolina Custom ear and the bearclaw there would be enough play so the weight of the handle won't be "tapping" on the bearclaw. I do want to use the locks but it will take some engineering because the slide is right at the window channel. Going into this project I knew that space was my problem so I'll just have to work thru it. My doors are not suicide so there is no need of safety pins which I did have on the Willys. Even had a light on the dash that would only go out when BOTH pins were engaged. Diagram supplied on request. As a side note, not real crazy about pins and locks in the event of an accident. They would keep the door closed BUT emergency teams would end up using jaws and eating valuable time.
