Re: [T3] Door Handles

<x-flowed>My door handles won't come off! I can see a groove for c-clips like Chevys have. I don't see any c-clips, so have prise with screwdriver as my Autopress Manual suggests. I can get a good grip with Chanelocks, but just wiggles! I'm not missing something less than obvious here am I??? Mike

Ya know what we REALLY need? The slotted washers used to pull the upper and

harvest some beams but they would need to be made from hardened steel so
they wouldn't bend and cutting the slotted hole in them would be the fun

I tried making a pair of those a few years ago. I didn't have any kind of CAD program at the time, but I did have some used bushings from a dead beam.

The ones I made LOOK terrific, but they don't actually work.
Everything about them was just a tad too big to slip thru the
bushings when tilted. These were not hardened; they were just thick
enough, about 3/8", that they're not going to bend.

Just another project that needs revisiting....
