    I couldnt find any post or DIY's on how to do this. I have the door panel removed and cut the plastic sheet to the hole where the back of the handle is but now im lost. I bought new color matched door handles and would like to install them. I cant even get to the front of the handle on the back side?

    So ... how did it work out? Was it as easy as the writeup? I just pulled the trigger on handles for my Barcelona Red. (The wife is out-of-town .... [​IMG])

    Hey buddy, how do the new handles look on the Barcelona Red? I am very close to doing it but just can't find a cheap enough price. I have the same color but was wondering how the red looks? Do you have a 4 door? Back doors do NOT have that black plug to remove so I assume that I'd remove the 3 hex bolts on the side and the handle slips out?
