Default Interior door handles

Any news on how the MX5 door handles fit and what they look like?

Eddy has them fitted and working fine... he has not got around to trimming the door panels yet so hard to appreciate how they will look in the end.

Must admit I've been toying with the idea of changing mine to get a more finished look around them to the door panel...

They do work fine, however if you wish to unlock/lock the door from inside its pretty stiff, this is due to the lock/unlock level being a lot shorter than the original Jag handle one, this didnt bother me as my doors lock/unlock with the ignition being on or off.
To fit them you will have to make new rods tho, and I welded a couple of brackets onto the mazda frame in order to mount them to the door, just basic fabrication really, nothing special.
If you got for the MK2 Mazda handles, theyre much nicer looking, and finished in a matt silver as well.
