New chrome door handles GT6


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been done before - I had a look on the forum.


A certain parts company is offering a pair of new chromed outside door handles/locks  for £156 a pair.  (Mk.3 GT6)


I vaguely recall hearing once that these aftermarket handles are not good quality and can snap.


Anyone with experience?


Would it be better to rechrome the originals?

If your current handles are salvagable I would have them re-chromed; will be useful to take them to a reputable chromer and see what they have to say about the feasibility before looking elsewhere. May even be worth looking out for a decent set of originals that are in good condition; there may well be some of them around.


Some "new" stuff on the market is decent and a lot is less so.


Where are you located ??

When having a bumper rechromed I asked about the door handles. Basically they said they could re-chrome and it would better than they were BUT aged /  pitted MAZAK does not take rechroming as well as new and the finish would not be perfect.


I decided to get a set from paddocks as I needed new locks - I've kept the old ones just in case I need parts.


As can be seen above there are some failures and successes!
