i used to have this problem. storing my car several months of the
year cut down on the problem considerably. i then completely
eliminated the problem by moving south. this mod works equally well
on all sports cars and motorcycles :), as always YMMV.

There's about 1-2 days a year that seem nice enough to take them off, and about half the time it suddenly starts raining on me. That results in the mad dash to put them back on, and makes me generally quite cranky :-)

Large quantities of alcohol pumped into the door lock will free it up eventually (assuming I remember to have some with me!). Oh, of some note for others while I'm thinking about it... I found that silicone spray lube on the bottom door seal helps keep my door from being so frozen that I can't open it (still usually have to pull pretty hard, but at least it WILL open). Without that, I used to have to take the hair dryer to the door frequently during this season... However, still no real solution whatsoever to the door lock issue.
