What do you want to do? I could probably rig something up....but it would be better to have the correct part.

Franz - I didn't know that the cargo door handle for a Panel bus was different from a Kombi/Deluxe/Standard cargo handle. Frown #-o
The fix is on it's way to you! Wink

Its been a long day of fitting door handles together, and re-keying. Almost done. One more to go...Need to see if I can find another lock cylinder to replace the repaired one that you have.

I got to look over this bus today. It could be a shuttle for some fancy hotel or a private airline. Really neat build. Hope it sees lots of use in the future.

Fully assembled and functional. Getting moving parts like door handles re-chromed, then finding out that the thickness of the new chrome/copper does not allow them to fit back together, can really make a person respect a nicely worn OG part.

I can't believe how awesome this bus has turned out. Or closer to my generation, "bitchin ride man" =D> =D> =D> =D> You guys have been so patient with all my requests. I can't imagine anyone could have done it better. KCW RULES \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ I just want to get behind the wheel and show it off! Smile Smile Smile Smile. Clearly, if you want it done right and in a reasonable time Kustom Coach Werks is where you go!

I'm in Grand Junction at least once a month and always stop at KCW, so have watched this project up close since day one. Wish I could be there when you you pick it up. Your gonna cry happy tears ! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.
