Exterior door handle cuts
« on: June 30, 2016, 05:46:31 PM »
Hey Guys Im currently restoring a 66 Calais and some Moron has fitted plastic exterior door handles and I need to fill in the holes.
Anyone with some rusty doors etc I can cut out sections would be awesome.

Cheers Shaun

The ideal section to get from a door, as removing the piece would ruin a door, would be the top-rear section of the outer skin so that you have a complete template as well as the inner bracing to show you where it is actually supposed to sit on the side of the door.
