First off, amazing work there. I vote the old handles as well but maybe lose the door lock. I think you want to keep most of the old personality of the car intact but add all the creature comforts and tech of the new ones. Its a fine line and obviously subject to personal opinion but the only drastic outside change I have ever liked on these cars is when I saw someone change the tail lamps out to shelby style.

I'd vote new ones. I don't like how the old ones feel. New ones also look better I think.

You're doing a great job btw, very interesting project you got going there!

Cheers,
Vincent.

I like the new style handles, that would look good. But if I had to say something about the mirrors, then I would have cut the plastic triangle of and made a bracket to be placed in what’s left of the plastic and installed it in the original position where the original mirror are placed Smile

Are you not worried that the big hole will weaken the structure too much?

Because of the price I would probably make my own.

Wow! Kindig is proud of his parts!  I wonder if you could use actual Tesla model 3 door handles.  I looked on ebay.  You can pick them up for about $100 each.  They are electric switches instead of mechanical so you would need door lock actuators but they are cheap and if you are going to shave the locks anyway that seems like a cool way to go.

Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

H'mm.  More work, less chrome.  I'm definitely in the more shiney stuff camp.  New ones would be a cleaner look if thats the priority.
