    the door handles are pretty straightforward. you need to weld or bolt brackets to attach the door handle where you want it and then bend and shorten the rod which is pushed down by the door handle to unlatch the door

    For my 355, I am using solenoids and love it. With the large door scoops, the 355 is perfect for the push button for a solenoid.

    Mr. Vicious. I just re-located the inner door handles on my project. I used Toyota 'flapper' type interior handles and the Fiero rod. Had to straighten the rod and experiment a lot to get everything going in the right direction. I was wondering while doing this if anyone ever used cables instead of rods to connect handle with latch?
