Hi guys...

Haven't posted in ages, so thought I should start again...

About 12 months ago I took a bunch of my FE and FC drawings and made an iMessage "sticker app"... (just for iphone and ipad text messaging)

I think I've sold about 18 of them since then (I'm not much of a salesman). I won't be making a million bucks from it, just a bit of fun...

Cheers, Les...

I've got the coarse line in my ute, but I want to put in the fine line ones and yep the screws do not line up - hence my pondering on what to put back in as I prefer the fineline. Would be okay if the car wasn't already painted. but may be able to disguise it, not sure yet, something I haven't had a chance to do yet

I ran into a similar problem. My EK Holden wagon had been drilled for handles in the front doors. I forgot to ask the panel guru to fill them, so when the car came back from paint and panel the holes were still there. I wasn't too worried, as I like the look of the Lenlok handles. I tried hunting for a pair of fineline ones for a while, but kept missing out on eBay auctions (some of the prices were silly... this was the same time you bought yours). A gentleman on this forum ended up sending me a pair (with thanks), which I tried to fit. No go... the holes did not line up.

Turns out that the fineline hole centres are wider, and my wagon had been drilled for the coarseline ones. I didn't know that at the time... just that the holes were wrong. I put a #6 stainless self tapper into the "wrong" hole, and redrilled to suit the fineline. They bolted up OK, though you could still (just) see the self-tapper head under the handle. My wagon is neat, but no show-pony, so I was happy.

Whilst faffing around with the rear door trims a few months later, I noticed dimples in the rear doors. Sure enough, the rear doors had been drilled for handles too, though the new paint had largely blocked the holes. I cursed myself (again) for not paying attention, and went back on the hunt for two fineline handles. eBay prices were really stupid... up to $400 for a set of four. I patiently kept trying, and eventually bought a set (paid $100 for the four, and still think the price is silly for what they are). Got the four new handles home, and eventually got round to fitting them.

Unpacked the parcel, and was suprised... the four new ones were coarseline. My dumbass fault for not reading the eBay ad photos well enough. Figured I would remove the two fineline ones from the front doors, and fit the four coarseline all round. Suprise suprise, the coarseline ones bolt straight up to the holes. I removed the two #6 self-tappers, and thankfully the coarseline handles cover my attempts at drilling the new holes.

So I've got two spare fineline handles. No 1 Daughter was intrigued by the handle saga, and has claimed the spare ones for her ute.

Cheers,
Harv

Interestingly, the Lenlok "fineline" handles are very different dimensionally to the "coarseline" ones.

Fineline: 0.49"x1.0"x5.34", 4.09" between fastener centres, 5 ribs
Coarseline: 0.58"x0.99"x5.14", 3.97 between fastener centres, 4 ribs

Both have Lenlok cast into the rear of the handle. The "fineline" have 20 cast into the rear too.

Cheers,
Harv

Got an early fb one at Willunga. It will get you rolling but there are quite a few subtle differences in the pivots etc. $50.
