Hi Todd,

Don't know if it's worth the hassle.
I can get those Aftermarket units for $6 each, my price!!
I would feel guilty putting anything higher than a 100% markup.. that's
still $12 each!

I have couple of these handles on my cars and other than the supplied trim
piece fell off by itself, you can always use the original one and it fits

Just my $0.02
