Default V90 doorhandels for White-Rice

Last weekend a buddy of mine and me installed the V90 doorhandles on the white-rice.
It all went pretty smooth only one thing truly sucked.. all the doorhandles on the car where rusted out so the bolts did not had any grip so we had to drill them out



The guys! sorry for the no shirt pic but we dont get nice weater allot


What the afternoon is all about


jiggeling the screws .. we did not know yet the where rusted out in the handle


How will we get there?, We drill!


The difference


What is left of the old handles


Puting the panels back


yay!

Nice! Just done this on my car and only had two that were rusted off. Ended up cutting 20 odd cut off wheels to get the old handles off.

Looks good and a lot smoother.

the bolt on my fathers 940 was rusted when i had to replace the broken door handle on his car. you could grip the bolt, but it was stripping out in the handle. i just put a driver bit on the drill, and spun it until it melted the plastic of the door handle.
and yes, the newer style handles bolt right on (did it on my 940, but didnt get white ones, painted silver ones black, car is white) for me the hardest part was hooking the back doors back up. getting the pull back on to the handle mechanism. but really all in all pretty straight forward, and smoothes out the car's looks a little.

I did this months ago on my white car, painted the handles myself, they started off blue, was fun doing that, and I didn't have my old handles rusted though, must be something to do with the warmish climate here :p

Thanks guys, very happy with the result .. I'm getting the side trims of the door too in a few weeks (white on chrome) to smooth the car out even more :-)

V90 trim does not fit, it goes above the old trim so you need to clean the old holes and drill new ones, i might just paint the current ones

Looks good and so easy to give the box an updated look. The one thing I need to do to mine is to repaint but overall I'm pleased with the look. g@tti
