    OK, So I bought so color matched door handles off ebay for dirt cheap..

    Less than $10... Yeah...

    They fit, everything greats. BUT. The passenger door.
    My passenger door doesn't have a key hole, but the kit I bought does have a keyhole for the passenger side..
    Basically my question, where can I find either a lock for the passenger door, a color matched cover for the passenger side, or how should I go about painting the stock non keyhole for the passenger side..

    Here's the part I'm looking for..

    Here's one of the handles, the others outside, For $10 I think I would've been crazy not to buy...

    I'd just scuff it up, throw some adhesion promoter on it, and paint it. Since it's just the one piece, if it doesn't wear well you can always touch it up.

    Each piece has a part number. You should be able to order just that one part. You might try TRDparts4u.com. That's where I ordered my handles.
