Door handle screw

xx89gtstangxx 22.01.2016, 00:41
Hey guys my door handle finally broke on the passengers side of my 89 GT. I think I can just drill out the rivets but I ordered new handles and they didn't come with new hardware to install them. Does anybody know where I can get new screws for the exterior door handles.

i bolted mine on my 87 gt, because i'm impatient. it was harder to get the interior door handle off and on than it was to change the outside handle

this is engine related??? j/k, thats how a lot of the are, bolted. or you can spend 400 bucks on the huge tool it take to put the oe rivets back in....

i use bolts to install the handles back on, its a PIA to do the pop rivits and make them work/last a long time.

I used the pop rivits and have the big hand tool to install them (not anywhere near $400). I'm always scared I might scratch up the door when it pops, but never have messed up anything.

For you guys that used bolts are they flush or do they stick out some, I've already replaced the door handle on the drivers side, I just got it from a salvage and it has screws in it that are flush I just don't know where to get 2 more screws like that. Oh and sorry for posting in the wrong section.

X2......I think I have like $30 in the rivots and tool put together.
