I guess you guys might already have you own techniques but I found that KY Jelly Surprised and parachute string allowed me to get all of the windows in my bay within 2 hours. That included the windscreen all with new window rubbers. Just incase you have not tried that method before Wink

The method I use is waxoyl...(instead of ky jelly)...as this lubricates and then seals ....with nylon type string (just like parachute rope) Very Happy

I reckon you should go down the custom route with the door.
Shave the handle and fill and smooth the letterbox, fit a solenoid door handle and then french a doorbell into it.......
