Looking for feedback from anyone who may have purchased aftermarket outside door handles for 73 torino style cars.  Checking ebay I find Dorman brand and 1A auto with 1A auto being about half the price of the Dorman.  I thought I remembered reading a post with a comment on the quality of ones they had purchased but can't locate it now.  Anyone bought either brand and have opinion on quality?  thanks  -  dave

John, if there is no pitting would like a drivers side one, otherwise I'll probably just try one of the dorman ones, I was still hoping for some feedback from anyone who has tryed them.  thanks  -  dave

Not sure about aftermarket, but if John doesnt have l with good chrome I do. It came off a left side Elite/Cougar door from Texas. Just another option...
