Unless you're going for a high point show restoration, just make the gaskets from some thin black vinyl winter carpet runner mat like they sell in rolls at Lowe's, etc. (I think I used a small pre-packed mat, it had little ribs on one side but you can't see them) I traced the handles and one old gasket I had and cut them out with knife/scissors, they look fine and do the job, even over new paint. When you say little spring, are you referring to the small clips that hold the handle in the lock that engage the groove at the end of the shaft? They are available in packs and any auto store in the Help section or on eBay. Or do you mean the large push button spring? those should be available too.
