    anyone made there own door pulls or used the 60's style pulls because of reproduction door pull failure? pics would be good. my wifes car is on it's 2'nd set and they do not last. better to roll down the window and close the door from the outside than " pull on the pull "!:mad:

    thinking of getting the door panel rebuilt with short arm rests and a single strap pull like the late 60's camaros had. may get some sheet metal pop riveted into place to give the area some more stregnth.

    I used a piece of chain and some bolts. It looks super bad ass and works!
