Is this normal for this type of part to be this beat up? Either way, it's getting a new coat so they look clean after installation
Got the pins back...

I'm taking some pictures as I go and can hopefully make a little build guide when I'm done and I can link from your thread. I just won't want to get in trouble from the manufacturer for building something similar to what they sell, ya know?
It's no prob. Thats why I made the thread.
If you build em and sell em, they might have a prob with u, but if you are just building them for yourself, I can see no issue

handles WK

I fixed the drivers handle on my jeep. went pretty smoothly. used some nuts to hold it on the two plastic pins that are moulded to the inside of the panel. Some self tapping screws and sealed it up with pvc cement. that's the stuff you use to join pvc pipes together

Went wheeling on my day off yesterday, got some battle scars and ripped my rear bumper off on some rocks, guess its time to invest in some 4xguard skids
