72 Convertible Deluxe Interior Door Pulls
#1
Hello,

I have a 72 convertible with deluxe interior. I am refinishing the door panels and I need a new set of door pulls. Does anyone know where I can get some which have the appropriate bottom and top studs to mount into the panel? The repos don't seem to have them which makes them useless.

Thanks
Justin

The ones that NPD carries shows the studs in place.

Thanks but I tried the ones from NPD, they only have the bottom studs.

I also tried CJ Pony Parts but they sent me the wrong parts twice and then claimed they did not have what I needed in stock.

The upper mount is not a stud, it has a machine screw that threads in through the backside of the door panel itself.

Thanks, is it supposed to thread into something? The repos don't seem to have anything for it to thread into other than the plastic or foam and I cannot imagine that will hold.

During the molding process the metal frame/backing may have gotten covered up by the foam. I would scrape the foam away where the screw would enter and see if there's anything there.

There's a metal bracket that is overmolded when the handle is made, see the eBay link. I can't imagine the repops omitting this feature. You probably need to cut away the rubber over the bracket on the top side to expose the threaded hole.
