Default Weight saving, room adding, and nostalgic door pulls

After getting tired of having the door handle sitting on my knee for years while trying to get comfortable during long distance trips, I dreamed of a smaller, lighter door pull. Before posting this, I jerked on these like... well.... you know... and they held fine. If you pulled the door as hard as I pulled on these, you'll have bigger issue.

Okay, the OEM door handles weigh next to nothing, but these add a bunch of room. The best part is, at 15 shipped within the 48 states, these things are a must have.

Be ahead of the curve. I only have 2 more extra sets, but can make a few more if there's interest next week.

Again, 15 shipped within the 48 states takes a set.

I'm working on these, but still not happy with them. They work fine, but I'm ---- retentive and they aren't exactly right. Once right, they'll be about 10 more. I thought about adding blanks, but kept finding myself grabbing that area of the door when getting out to keep the wind from swinging the door into other cars (its been SUPER windy here)

Guess I'm the only lardo in here who wanted an extra 2-3 inches for my knee to sit.
