Has anyone tried the Kindig-it door handle?


Recommended Posts

Not planning on it. It is crazy priced item.

Looks cool, just wondering if anyone has tried them and if the install was a PITA.

Sunken flush door handles ain’t really an 02 thing… it’d have to a highly-modded show car with all the body work involved.  (esp since it’s pretty tight up in there with our thin curved doors with handle pockets — and you’d need to re-engineer a linkage to the bulky inside of those sunken handles). They’re more ‘merican styled to my eye.
 

Cool tho’


I personally think the sleek art deco-styled door handles with the upper ribbing details that we gots already are pretty darn sweet..

Kinda like a flame job on a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II.  It just ain't an 02's style.

There is a lot of metal work needed just to the door skin to make it fit. That portion of the door has a rather significant curve so the flat face on the handle might not look as smooth as you would like. What do you do about the lock? Getting the mechanism to hook up to the latch in the limited space you have in that area will be interesting.

 

I'm sure it can be done all it takes is skill (or enough $$ to hire someone that has it)

Exactly the point I was trying to make, Byron

I am not doing it guys!

His handles seem to keep showing up on a lot of customization shows and I was wondering if anyone here tried it. 

 

The closest I am getting to the "shaved" look is having the lower trim taken off , euro turn signals and  bumpers.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
