    Doors, or windows? Either way I'd order for 79-80 in your case from Steele Rubber. If they weren't in stock I'd call Metro Molded Products next. You can also get new window felts.

    What a Beautiful car! Man, I truly Love those big '80 landau quarter windows. And how could you do better than Nightwatch Blue? Man that thing is Sharp! Dual sport mirrors even. Looks like the only thing you need is some nice LED Headlights to reduce the load on your electrical system and provide a more pure light in the dark to guide you.

    NICE !!!!!

    Thanks man I appreciate it! I couldn’t pass it up when it was time to buy a car. But do you know where I could find some leaf springs and all brackets for it? I got a lot of work to do to make it road worthy

    You can try ESPO for springs, shackles, u-bolts, etc. You'll have to call them and tell them what you are looking for. BTW, ESPO is an absolute joy to deal with, seriously! They don't sell directly through their website. It's more of a general listings and information type thing. To order, you call.

    As for front hangers and spring plates, don't know off hand at the moment. Some of it depends on if you'll be keeping the iso-mounts or converting to conventional non-isolated mounting plates.

    Would you happen to know what I would ask for, should I just tell them the car I have or the measurements of the brackets I need? I’m very new to working on cars this is my first go at it. Also I desperately need the bracket that seems to be under the u-bolts with the rubber inside of it, no clue what it’s called but the metal is cracked in half and I have 2 weeks to get it ready to drive 1500 miles ahaha.

    At one time Firm feel sold new brackets that surrounded the leaf spring with the rubber isolators. I don`t see them on their site anymore. If you want to get more involved you can eliminate the brackets and the rubber and use the shock plates that are used on earlier mopars. You can search for good used ones but they are getting harder to find too. http://www.firmfeel.com/fmj_body_mopar_parts.html
