QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
- Q. Hi, I installed kindig shaved doorhandles. Is this applicable with your shaved kit? 49 cab and doors but kindig handles. Thanks
A. The Kindig handles require that you have a "paddle" to press on to open the latch, so our shaved handle option would not work for you. However, our regular kit WILL work with the Kindig handles.
- Q. I have a 52 cab but using 49 doors will the latches work
A. They will work, but you will have to call in your order, so that we can prepare a kit with the proper parts you will need.
- Q. Will these latches work for a 1954 gmc pickup as well?
A. Yes they will.
- Q. If I order these for outside handles what do I need if I switch to shaved door handle
A. Nothing else has to be done. If you shave the handles later on, the latches that work WITH the outside handles will still work.
