SPORT TRUCKTECH TIP
JUST A REMINDER

Don't forget to remove door glass from the inside of the door, because it will pit from welding and grinding. Always remove any trim or hardware from inside the door that may get damaged during the welding procedure. Cover all exterior glass and paint. John at Clean Cut Creations uses 3M Welding and Spark Paper, PN 05916. He says, "The product is expensive, but it's cheaper than buying new glass." Do not use standard masking paper, cardboard, or your grandma's old blanket because these things will catch on fire as you are working. If you are working with the truck door open for any reason, cover all interior areas.

THE FINAL WORD

This installation will be different on each vehicle, depending on what donor handle is used. But, the most important thing to remember is to completely bolt in and mock up the new handle, and fab the lock rod and handle linkage with the glass and gasket installed to check for clearance. If you have an S-10, you might want to consider the Malibu as a perfect donor, but again the options are only limited to your imagination.
