I just ordered the chrome inside door handles. My question is...they don't have cut-outs for the unlock/lock button in them. Is it okay to just cover them up...or is it not going to sit correctly? If it's not going to fit, how would I go about cutting it out so I can still use that feature...without spidering the chrome?

The best way would be to tape the chrome part with some masking tape and drill two holes roughly where the button is. Then dremel it out to size. The tape will help stop the chrome from chipping. Post some pics after your done.

No, not the cups. The outside plastic part. Where the button is to lock/unlock your doors. That whole piece. I was looking at the cups...but decided against them for now.

well the inside handles unfortunately are chrome already, as well as the lock/unlock manual switch. But still you want to add more chrome....which is why i say :nono: :slap: . :p

That small piece, doesn't really seem worth it IMO. Don't forget to post pics though so i can tell you how bad they look :nana:

I have seen those on EBay, seems cool, but alot of work to make the buttons work with out screwing up the chrome. And ya my car already has chrome handle and lock, however I think some do not.

Don't the Front handles have the Lock/Unlock on the handle, looks like those will cover the switch.

Do you know if these are made of metal or plastic? If it is plastic no problems, but if they are metal, you may have a problem not only with the chrome spider webs, but it may heat the chrome changing its color to that rainbow look. So, I don't know if you have already got them, but you may want to find out first. It may save you a headache later.
ps. is that you in your avitar? If so :drool:

I am not sure what they are. I will hopefully get them in the mail soon. The guy e-mailed me a week ago and said he sent them. They're in Hong Kong, so they will take a bit to get here.

Yes, that is me in my avatar.
