Door Ease and toilet setting wax rings are made from bees wax.
I'd lubricate the brass pocket and door latch with some.

I never thought of using beeswax--I have been used "door ease" for years--I guess the toilet wax ring is probably cheaper. Ya learn something new everyday!!

Fred,
Pictures 9 and 13 show the dovetail, not the bottom bumper. Did you reverse the bottom rubber pieces. Maybe I am confused between what you reversed. Did you only reverse the dovetail rubber pieces?

Only reversed the dove tail rubber parts.

I have not installed the very bottom rubber bumpers yet. Ihave not installed the top bumpers either. I know that the bottom bumpers will need some trimming to get them to fit correctly and I may glue them in place. (I work on a 30 Coupe sometimes and the bottom bumpers seem to fall off occasionally!)
