Small little things that make the car.
The door lock knobs on mine where for the most part dry rotted and or missing.
When i was painting the car, they would break when unscrewing them. I thought I'll just buy some more no problem.
Well, the ones you get that say the work are just basic 1 fits all type. the threads don't match the rod. if there are really threads inside or not. The door lock retainers don't even come close to working.
I got one door lock knob halfway on, yet it still needs to be screwed down at least another 1/2". I really think there are no threads inside and as you screw it down it makes the threads. I think I'll get a tap and cut the threads in the rest of them.
On the retainers I'm going to make my own with the 3d printer.
I drew it up in cad and then converted it to a stl file and printed them. I'll post some pics when I get them installed. they look white in the pics but they are gray in real life.
