Exterior Details -- Door handles?
Posted by lacquer-lover on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 6:29 AM

I'm looking for exterior door handles for my '67 Impala. I don't think the kit handles are going to look too good under several coats of primer/paint/clear.  I assume a lot of folks remove the kit handles and attach aftermarket stuff when all painting is done? Well I hope I am correct and that someone can tell me where I can get some good resin door handles?  Thanks

I had heard of someone making door handles some time ago.  You think I could remember who?  No. 

Try contacting Fireball Modelworks.  They might be able to help.

Yes, Fireball Modelworks has door handles. I bought a GM set (about 12 door handles) and they were inexpensive and look great. I am about to post a picture of one of them in my 70 Chevelle thread. I pinned them and painted them with Alclad and they are ready to mount! 

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.
