I have the bakelite wedges on order, as well as the door rubber bumpers. Will be installing weatherstrip etc, too.

The exterior DS handle is actually pretty tight.

The exterior PS handle droops quite a bit - it rests maybe 45 degrees off from horizontal.

Both interior handles rattle quite a bit. They rest straight up and down, which I believe is correct, but can rotate maybe 30-45 degrees clockwise before stopping. The counterclockwise pick up to release the latches is pretty instantaneous.

It sounds like besides the drooping PS exterior handle that this might be what we're working with (which is fine if I don't have to take them out!)
