I am talkintg about the interior door handle that is held in by the torx screws on the door panel. Rain has rusted away the original steel strip that reinforces the "pleather" handle.

I replaced the steel with aluminum from Lowes. part # 11039. for $5.00





All you need is a few tools, shown here.


Ofcourse you will need different size bits to slowly work the aluminum. It is more malleable then the stock steel strip.




fits in the the groove very nicely


You will ofcourse put a hole in both sides, but I did one side first and put the pleather over to make sure the measruements.when it was in this state is prob the best time to bend to your desire.

FINISHED....Back to stock appearence and prolonged the life of the OK shape "pleather" handle



Cool

10 minute job...minus trip to lowes.

anybody have any kool ideas for the door strap?
