G'day all,

I finally got my handles done in chrome. The finish is OK, doesn't look like it was done in someones backyard but what you can't see is that its 99.9% smooth.
Have to wait a couple of weeks for the clear coat to dry before putting them on.
If anyone has any information, like drawings/instructions or something could they send them via pm. I think it might be a really fiddley job and I can't attempt it unless I have a clear idea of what I am doing. ............
Thank you in advance.

these look sweet.. where did you get them done and for what sort of $$$?

the trick for doing the rear handles.. is to take the three bolts out, holding the latch mechanisim on, then push the mechanisin in a bit so you can get your socket in and onto the rear 10mm nut..

its no were near that hard to go and do that, its just fiddly is all as you get p****d at the nut falling out of the socket if you use greesee like i have said you dot have any problem.
