68 interior door handles
« on: July 01, 2018, 09:08:19 am »
Anyone ever successfully remove the roll pin that secures the two pieces of handle? This pin is in a blind hole. Need to replace the spring and to also seperate the two pieces to send to plating. Am tempted to drill hole in back side and drive it thru, and fill back side with solder and then send to platers. Any suggestions? Have flashbacks of  broken drill bits if I were to try to drill it out especially since those pins tend to grab bits. Hey...but I ain't sceered...but I ain't dumb either lol!
Thanks guys!

     Hard to say. Seems like there are several styles of roll pins. One type isn't very hard. Drilling it out without damaging the handle can be challenging. Best of luck to you.

NOS handles are still out there, wouldn't that option be cheaper and easier?  Do not get the reproduction handles though, they are not indexed properly.

These handles evidently fit other applications than Mustang? Thanks for the info Danny I'll have to start checking into the NOS.
