    $235 with pockets like OEM.
    $185 without the pocket like my original welded aluminum handles.
    I set up a store on my website to make keeping track of the handles easier.
    b00st3d.com/handles you can find the details and place orders here.

    These are machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum and will come with an as machined surface.

    Price will be for the handles and the hardware to mount them into your existing bezels

    If you need bezels I can supply those too. $20
    and for $20 more I will assemble them into the new bezels.

    I also have clear and black anodized sets available.

    Tony,
    I'm definitely watching this! I want to see what these look like inside the bezel. Hopefully you can post as soon as you get a test set done!

    Been waiting for someone to do this for nearly 15 years; I'm definitely interested. Are the bezels you provide for additional expense plastic aftermarket or oem?

    I assembled them last night and the arms and the fit there is perfect. I have to make a minor change before the production run. The nose of the handle touches.

    Aluminum singles are very expensive to produce 1 at a time. (a little more than double the normal cost). I won't make aluminum till I know they are right. I've already got a lot invested in this.

    The bezels are aftermarket. Only way to get OEM now is thru STM and they are $100 each.

    Many years ago someone made laser cut inserts the would reinforce the stock plastic handle. I bought a set and did this modification to a Dorman aftermarket handle. While the handle itself held up, it ended up breaking the inner uprights that the hinge passes through. Do you think the same will eventually happen with these aluminum handles, and if so, would there be any way to reinforce the hinge?

    Circled area is where the hinge failed on my reinforced handle.

    The bezel is the next weak link. No way around that unfortunately. I would do the bezel in aluminum too but those would cost more than the handles so people would have close to or even a little over $500 in door handles. It's just not worth the investment IMO to make aluminum bezels.

    Yeah, fair. The metal inserted handles did last significantly longer than then the unmodified plastic handles, so these aluminum parts will be worth it regardless.

    Here they are coming out of anodizing. You can see the Raw finish, Clear Anodized and black anodized. Clear is actually a grey finish. b00st3d.v5.np.jpg b00st3d.v5.jpg
