    3DR - Manual Winders Driver side grab handle

    Hi all, my damn handle has come away in my hand because the door card went to crap when I removed it to fix my central locking and made it loose, its finally give way anyhow.

    I been looking in scrappy and found one however it looks like its been melted to the door card, sadly they was only 1 3DR manual winder door cards there as the other side was broken.

    So I'm stuck with the following choices and to be honest I want to do as little work as possible right now as its one thing after another with the car.

    - somehow fix the door card, plastic welding? Glue? Can this be done.
    - finding a pair of 3DR door cards on manual.
    - finding a whole set of electric 3dr cards and then also taking out the motors and converting to electric.

    * chairs will not match the new cards either way, so maybe I should just look for a full interior? but again that's more cost just because of a handle.

    This is only a suggestion - I have never tried it, so don't get too cross if it isn't practical or doesn't work!!!
    How about reinforcing the inside of existing door card with either sheet metal or laminating some glass fibre matting at the back of it?
    If this can be done, it would save you a lot of work.

    Regards.
