There's a German one the same as this in this colour on EBay UK in London right now! Sahara Beige?
As you're in Oz the Best springs for the rear are Kings KBRL22, check my thread for details on my E9 coupe. I did fit some Peddars to the front (2120) but they're not really much good for this application as you can see from my car.

They're lovely cars, I'm surprised they're not more sought after. My uncle had one in the 1970s in pale blue with a dark blue interior. I'd leave it as it is and repair anything that needs doing, rather than modify it.
So it looks like new window motors wont be needed after all.
I have a receipt from an auto electrician that came with the car that says -
"Diagnose window problem" "Remove and inspect window motors" "Motors inoperable and found to be unserviceable" "Replacement motors (used) quoted at $150 each"
So I assumed the previous owner decided $600 was too much and left it at that.
When I pulled the door trims off and saw that the motors were unplugged I assumed they didn't bother plugging the dead motors back in.
But once I had both front motors out and next to each other it became pretty clear that the brushes weren't contacting were they once did.
So after a bit of poking and alining I had it back right, plugged them in for a test run and away it went.
So either the auto electrician was purposely trying to scam an extra $600 (and left the motors unplugged to drive home his point) or he genuinely didn't know how an electric motor works - I'm not sure which is worse.
