Post Door Handles
Does anyone use exterior door handles? Most of the pictures i see are all internal handles.
I take it you need to undo the hood to get in if you only have internal handles?

would like to keep away from electronics if possible, plus it will add a lot of weight to the doors. Probally going to put exterior handles on with locks too.

Did you get round to using the MX5 handles, and what where they like?
Pete (who is about to find some handles!!!)

It's not a big deal to open three hood poppers to put your arm in and flick the door latch PLUS it's harder for people to find their way in who you'd rather didn't :wink:

I have recently replaced a previous setup that used Metro hatchback catches with the early Mazda MX5 ones that I got off ebay. They work very well and look great.
I didnt bother with key locks though. I also kept the Metro catches

Post Re: Door Handles
here is a pic showing my exterior early MX5 handles.
I used a rubber grommet to fill in the key hole. I wish I could find a blind grommet but I guess you could use body filler or anything for that

I recessed the whole thing into the door and created a lip under the door skin for the handle to sit on, using fibreglass offcuts and body filler. I used the standard handle fitting bolts/studs and some steel strip to lock it into the door. A bit of a fiddle to do but well worth it. I am quite pleased with it.
