[DML] I'm Installing New Door Latches....Any Tips?

Hey guys!

I've ordered a set of door latches from DMC to replace my old ones.  
They were so marred from 26 years worth of slamming the door that 
even the plasticwas chipped and chunked!

Every time I go to shut my door I have t opositionthe pin so the door 
will shut otherwise the doors either latch unevenly leaving a nice 
inch and a half gap along the bottom sill or getting stuck and I have 
to pull up hard to get the door open.  Said events  mainly happened 
with my right side door, which shuts fine with the pins placed 

I also have a set of door guides that I bought from Toby but have yet 
to install them.  My car is a very early, VIN 791, and neither of the 
previous owners had the guides installed.

Getting back on track now - do any of you have any tips I should heed 
when removing the old latches / reinstalling the new latches?

I love my car and want to make sure I do the job right the first time.

Thanks a bunch everyone!
