FL FC3S Aluminum Driver Door Handle Upgrade

Here we go!! I am new at this so be easy on me.lol

Initial group buy for Fc3s Aluminum Driver Door Handle Upgrade.
First group buy will be initially 10 orders only.

Those interested need to ship their broken handle.
These are cast aluminum parts and will be manually worked on for proper fitment.
Painting is owners responsibility.
The part will have a warranty . Any problems and it will be replaced as necessary.

Aluminum Handle Price=$85.00 Provided you send your core in.

Credit of $10.00 to your purchase In the event were you have an extra Driver side core... LIMIT 1 extra driver side core only.

$10.00+ on the price of the handle if the Handle Core is not provided.

The price for the core is to keep a steady supply of them. And it makes the handle more affordable.

As soon as overall member payment is complete i will make the casting order. And work will commence.

Pm me if your interested.


Thanks to those who followed the thread!!!

FL Hello folks.

Sorry for the delay in answering.... As of now unfortunately its something i have to hold back on until there is sufficient interest. Reason for this is because i have to buy them in batches. So far on the good news end the one i have set on my car is working fine.

I guess with due time.

FL hEY!!

Thanks for the interest i appreciate that!.... But i will attempt to do what i can with whats available to me.

I have a core that one of the members sent to me for experimental purposes. I havent forgotten ya Derekcat!!!

But i honestly do want to provide this for Fc fans.

Although i am thinking of making a batch regardless and provide it for those who need one. Hopefully all goes well some time around Feb- March

If you're willing to make the investment, It's an idea. That way you have a stock that's ready to go out whenever someone needs one. My drivers one just broke yesterday, but when it comes down to $85 for yours and waiting for an indefinite time one when it'll arrive when i need the handle now and buying one from mazdatrix for $130 w/ shipping, I'm tempted to go with Mazdatrix. On the otherhand, the idea of having one that's gonna last for more than a few months is VERY...attractive, i guess.

IE I really want one, but don't want to wait another 5 months or MORE like these other guys have...Obviously it all depends on whether or not you're financially stable enough to make the investment, but once word spreads on how good they are and more people want them I'm sure you'd make your money back quick enough

Honestly I'm surprised this isn't more popular, it's something almost all FC drivers have needed at some point or another. I'm sorta skeptical on buying a brand new one from mazdatrix and only having it last a couple years

So, if someone gave you $1000 and maybe 1 or 2 cores, how quickly can this be done?

Holy crud! Sorry I missed this message! The move around into a separate GB section always throws me (I tend to forget to check it)
Glad that you remember me! I'd thought the project was totally dead in the water...

I'm not hugely happy with my replacement stock handle.. Feels like it's rubbing (slightly warped?) so I'll happily try out a first run replacement when it's available ^_-
