    Take the locking mechanisms from the 80's GM's and put them in your 76 vent window glass.

    just be sure you have a couple tools when you go out to the Junkyard to pull these:
    something to remove the roll pin
    a fairly good sized torqs screwdriver

    or... you can do the chevyduty/lmc/jcwhitney thing, but a junkyard would be cheaper if you find a set in good shape /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Do you ever use them ? When I was missing the drivers side handle I just cranked up the spring tension in the spring inside the door so you couldn't open it . I have one now /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
