    Default How to install door handles nnbs

    I just noticed my door handles are looking grey compaired to the rest of the truck. I would like to paint the handle buckets gloss black to match, then maybe some real chrome (not plastic cover) door handles. Found some on ebay thats not a crew cab set lol. I'm sure I'll have to remove the interior door panels but beyond that what all is involved in installing door handles? Are there rivits I'll have to drill out :(? If I miss the auction then I may just paint the handles gloss black also.

    2 10mm nuts/bolts. One on each end of the handle. Very easy to do once you got the door panel out of the way and the plastic moister barrier pealed down. Another little tip, Make sure your window is all the way up.

    Sounds easy. I also need to oil the window mech. because it squeeks real bad at times. My old Mustang had rivits holding the door handles on & it took forever to drill them out. Thanks for the quick reply
