Default Quick release skewers

Hi
I like your thinking here,but being a cyclist myself as well as a dino builder there is something you may have over looked. The dino requires a left and a right door handle where as the quick release skewers are only one hand as they both operate from the same side of the bike. Also most come with makers logos cast into them eg/ campagnolo or shimano and grinding or sanding these off may make the alloy rather thin, in an area where constant pulling to open the door is really not an option. I've seen door handles on real dino bent from aggressive fingers!
I myself managed to borrow a damaged real ferrari item and fabricate my own from some steel off cuts I had which will be chrome plated as per original and for only a few hours work,but I know they are now available out there in polished stainless steel but for a price!
