got a set of your b body door handles for xmas, just got around to putting them in this weekend. have to say, they look pretty good, and are a economical alternative to re chroming the originals. one issue i noticed, the button on the handle seems very 'jiggly' one a bit more than the other,is this normal? the originals, one is tight with no play, the other has some play, but not nearly as much as the replacements. havnt driven car yet, hope that it doesnt make noise while i drive. any suggestions?
 
Unfortunately that's the way it goes with reproduction parts. 50/50 on quality. Hopefully they will be alright.
 
Can you throw up a pic, so we can see how accurate they look?? ..... we'll just have to imagine the jiggly.
 
maybe a little help, have video unable to post from my downloads anybody have some tips?
 
Don't see a lot of videos on this site. Pix are EZ.

Most videos here, are put up on YouTube, then link the URL to see it.

hey that was a great job lefty! i will see about a you tube account and try to post video. b body handles are a bit simpler seems like the only issue so far is the amount of play in the button itself. seems to work fine so far,just dont like how much it moves around, will see if it rattles when i drive it!

I bought some repro door handles and had a similar problem. Just not good quality. Found a chrome guy a few hours away. Re-chromed mine beautifully at the same price as the repros. Sending him my taillight bezels, front turn signal bezels and sail panel trim pieces for rechrome, all at close to, or better pricing.
 
how about some contact info on your chrome guy, im not that far away in the hudson valley area!
