    f430 door handles Enzo Design

    ive had a lot of questions recently for updated pictures on our kit parts
    some of you will know we totally redesigned it last year, our original car was made deliberately to demonstrate the fact we created the whole car in cad and made it fit the MR2 back to Toyota's mounting points, we got a lot of pointed comments about how it looked wrong, but we never set out to copy original panels and then chop them to fit, that was not the point of what we did.
    however after relativly good sales of the "shortnose" kit we started to evolve our process and turn from grp to plastic manufacture more and more, making a very accurate interior with correct working airbags so we then totally remade the outer body to take advantage of the new plastic techonlogy and tooling we have and now have possibly the most over engineered kit in the world at some 700 pieces!
    anyways lots of people wanting to see specific items weve about caught up with our backlog from the redevelopment and with me being away for 6 weeks working for McLaren ive now got a bit of time to take some pictures and upload them

    these are our door handles
    made in sections as layed out they screw and fit together as per oem and are complete as you see them with the rubber gasket (not shown) too.

    Easy to find used on Ebay these days.
    Don't even waste your time with ones made from plastic. They will break the first time you open the door. Even the OEM ones which are made from cast aluminum are week.
